2019 Zind-Humbrecht "Heimbourg" Riesling Alsace (Pre-Arrival)

SKU #1554548 95 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark There’s a lot of discussion about “noble austerity“ in wine, but those wines are often just a bit hard. This has a certain mineral austerity, but it is welded to the ripest of citrus aromas and breathtaking vibrancy. Although this already makes an impressive statement, the core is so tightly packed that it will show even better after some time to unwind. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drinkable now, but better from 2022. Inner quote mark (6/2021)

94 points Decanter

Outer quote mark Compared to other Zind-Humbrecht Rieslings, Heimbourg seems more spicy. Indeed, the bouquet shows spices and nutmeg aromas with spring flowers, herbs, and lemon touches. The palate is tense and tight, very calcareous, with a chalky texture and a finish both bright and airy. A Riesling with an incredible aromatic persistence and a remarkable freshness, with a slightly tannic or even austere sensation that will smooth out with time in the cellar. Very good ageing potential. Drinking Window 2027 - 2050. (JC) Inner quote mark (9/2021)
