Products of the domain : Domaine Zind-Humbrecht
Located in the heart of the Alsatian vineyards, the domaine Zind-Humbrecht is located in Turckheim and has no less than forty hectares spread from Hunawhir to Thann. The estate was converted to organic farming in 1997. It obtained the Bio certification (ECOCERT) in 1998, and the biodynamic certification (BIODYVIN / ECOCERT) in 2002.
Respect for terroir for exceptional wines
For more than ten years, Olivier Humbrecht has been cultivating his biodynamic vines in search of qualitative prowess, with the same rigor and search for the ideal as his father Léonard. Biodynamics is the search for an agriculture that respects the land. A soil cultivated in bio-dynamics contains ten times more micro-organisms than an organic soil, itself much richer than a traditional soil. It emerges from the strongly mineralized vines, producing particularly rich wines; Faithful expressions of the soil.
The Great Alsatian Wines of Zind-Humbrecht
Most wines from the Zind-Humbrecht house are wines up to several decades. Of the nine plots of the estate, four are cadastral and recognized Alsace Grand Cru. All these wines are an extraordinary expression of terroirs. Olivier Humbrecht was a pioneer with concentrated and fruity Alsace wines produced in low yields. A choice that pays off, since the estate enjoys a worldwide reputation among wine lovers. The domaine's wines are concentrated, with a fairly unusual and very personal balance, which makes them wines quite confusing for the most novice, but will exalt the most experienced.
But the quality of terroirs, treated in biodynamics, sublimated by an ultra-meticulous vinification gives birth to the greatest wines of Alsace. Olivier Humbrecht was the first Frenchman to receive the Master of Wine title in 1989: a guarantee of expertise, and a mark of recognition for the natural work of the vine.
