Zind Humbrecht is one of the unquestioned kings of aromatic whites. His ceaseless drive to create the worlds greatest examples of his varieties is nothing short of remarkable as are the resulting offerings. A devoted proponent of Biodynamics, a gifted presenter and communicator and a towering figure of modern wine, the first Frenchman to be awarded the MW (International Master of Wine) he has justifiably earned his reputation as one of legends of modern wine.

The Tuckheim Range is the value tier and represents classic Alsace whites from a regional blend of grapes as well as estate fruit.

The nose presetns with ripe honeyed, slightly toasted aromatics. One could almost feel that this wine saw some fresh oak, but no, it spent 12 months in classic old foudres which lends a lovely textured elemtent to the wine. The palate is velvety, elegant, almost soft, yet finishing very dry. There is lovely aromatic presence and richness without feeling heavy or fat. Wonderfully balance and textbook example of Gris in the right hands. Extremely food friendly and drinkable right now! PWS
