Article: 2016 Pinot Blanc AOC Domaine Zind-Humbrecht
Country: France
Growing area: Alsace
Category: White wine
Classification: AOC
Producer: Domaine Zind-Humbrecht
Grape variety: Pinot blanc and Auxerrois
Description: Bright yellow. This Cuvée from Pinot blanc and Auxerrois shows a wonderful fruit wealth of white and yellow fruits, pear, quince, greengage and a little lemon. The fruit is rounded off by a breath of honey, hay, wheat bran and almond. One has a typically Alsatian Pinot blanc here in the nose which shows much fruit and suggests sweetness. But it turns out at the palate that the wine is bone dry. Not even a gram of residual sugar is found in this wine. Yet still he seems fruit sweet and ripe. This has a lot to do in the year 2016 with the long growing season and the cool weather, so that although the grapes could get ripe, however, the alcohol remained very low. So one finds only 11.5% alcohol also here, and but, on the contrary, it is missing to nothing. The Pinot blanc shows much refinement, elegance and causes a very silky mouthfeel. One always notices a cutious and present lively minerality in the background. This has turned out well to a high extent.
