Zind-Humbrecht's dedication to terroir expression guides all winemaking practices, which include extended pressing cycles, abbreviated clarification cycles (to retain natural yeasts and proteins in the must), natural malolactic fermentation and extended aging on the lees.

harvest note

Winter 2014/2015 started with a lot of rain and mild temperatures. As usual, February and March were very dry and in May and early June we enjoyed some fair weather but also some decent rainfalls. After a cooler second half of August, temperatures were high again early September. Harvest started on the 2nd of September and finished on the 1st of October, but 80% of our vineyards were harvested before September 16th. Thanks to earlier harvest, we are very satisfied with the level of acidities in the 2015 wines. This year’s wines shows the potential of the really great vineyards that have acquired excellent ageing potential. 2015 has produced some very exciting wines!

tasting note

The nose is quite intense but opens up beautifully to reveal floral/fruity aromatics and a clear sense of limestone influence. The palate shows intensity but also stays elegant and tight. Very dry finish with ripe acidity touch, salivating, juicy and not aggressive. Impressive Pinot-Blanc, very pure in its definition.

food pairing

Enjoy as an aperitif, with shellfish or with trout.
