Riesling from the Frohnenberg lieu dit, in Herrlisheim (south of Eguisheim). Vines are 50+ years old and rooted in limestone soils. Farmed biodynamically. Citrus and some herbal notes. Very dry, fresh, vibrant, quite elegant. Amazing value.

Checking in on some 18’s. Nose is soppy red cherries and tons of earth. Floral and complex with great breadth. Nifty little lieu-dit here. Palate is powerful, dense and tannic. But has a terrific core of fruit. Really gets to the back of the throat and love how the tannins are mineral inflected. Has the “broad” character of 2018 which will I think, like 1993, ultimately smooth out with age. More closed than last year but it’s all there. Will be back. Now with air it’s integrating more and sweetening up and the tannins are becoming more velvety — 21 days ago
Pure, clean, shimmering minerals. A squeeze of lemon and some bubbles. Excellent. — 17 days ago
What a phenomenal wine is this 2017 Zind-Humbrecht Riesling from the lieu-dit Clos Windsbuhl, tasted for the second time having first tried in 2019. Honey, orange marmalade, blood orange, hazelnut, burnt butter and a distinct smokey character grace the nose, with a touch of sea breeze alongside a very creamy note - v complex overall.
The palate is totally unique, quite full bodied, with bitter orange, pink grapefruit, zesty yet an incredibly supple texture with chalky minerality. High acidity, sure, but really quite an elegant mouthfeel that leads to a reasonably long finish. Incredibly drinkable. — 7 days ago
Ja, dit hebben we niet elke dag. We starten bij 12gr en dat is al gweldig. Cassis en kreupelhout geuren het glas uit. Tabakkig, zwarte bessen, zwarte kersen, kokos (?), leuke lik vanille, melkchoco. Perfecte ondersteuning van tannines en zuren. Blijft lang hangen met nog wat inkt en menthol helemaal op het einde. Supér! — 16 days ago
