Buy Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris
The nose is powerful and intense, with nutty flavors, cocoa and ripe peach and pear. The palate feels much drier than the nose. It is big and bold, but with very firm acidity and lovely minerality.

The Humbrecht family has been winegrowers in Alsace since 1620 but the Domaine came by its current name when Leonard Humbrecht married Genevieve Zind in 1959. Located in the heart of the Herrenweg vineyard, Leonard significantly expanded the family’s holdings to include an enviable collection of Grand Cru and other high quality vineyards. The Domaine is currently managed by Leonard’s son, Olivier Humbrecht, the only Alsacian winemaker to attain M.W. status. A staunch advocate for biodynamic farming, Olivier tailors every aspect of viticulture and winemaking based on terroir. Whether a single vineyard or a blend, place and vintage are clearly and unmistakably expressed in each wine.
