2014 Riesling Calcaire, Domaine Zind-Humbrecht

Tasting this blind, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it was double the price. Thanks to the pure citrus fruit and the saline, mineral quality of the palate, it’s achieved quite a lot of complexity for what it is. The palate has a zippy apple and citrus character, and is dry and refreshing.

2014 Riesling Calcaire, Domaine Zind-Humbrecht
Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Olivier Zind-Humbrecht is respected not just for his winemaking but also his stature as France’s very first Master of Wine, as well as being a downright nice guy. With 40 hectares of vineyards farmed biodynamically, he is famous for very low yields, and for producing wine from all four noble grapes. Olivier has pioneered a grading system for his wines, labelling one (dry) to five to indicate their sweetness, amongst other efforts to put Alsace and indeed, Zind-Humbrecht, on the fine wine map.
