About this winery

Olivier Humbrecht is one of the world's most renowned winegrowers. He is a Master of Wine and has been described by Robert Parker as the greatest white winemaker on earth. Yet he is very soft spoken, humble, and self-deprecating, which makes him perfectly suited to his assumed role as a global ambassador of wine.

Notes about product

Following Alsatian tradition, Pinot Blanc is blended with Auxerrois to form this wine. Grapes are sourced from a combination of Zind-Humbrecht's top vineyards, including Herrenweg and Rotenberg vineyard. The respect for the vine and soil is very important for Olivier and is team of vineyard workers. All viticultural work is carried out by hand with the help of some horses to plough the vineyards with minimum impact of the soil. All vineyards have been certified organic and biodynamic since 2002. Low impact farming is practiced, organic composts are used and yields are restricted.

Winemaking notes

All wines are fermented in traditional oak vats using native yeasts. No additives are used, and chaptalization is never carried out. The wines are left on their lees and ferment at there own pace, the wines are not fined. Very little sulfites are added and the wines are bottled after at least 8 months on the lees.

Tasting notes

This wine is very appealing with aromas of nuts and white fruits with well-balanced acidity and a smooth texture.
