Riesling Brand 2014 Zind Humbrecht
€ 60,44 (in Vat)
Bottled in August 2016 with the highest alcohol volume of the 2014 Rieslings (moderate 12.65% alcohol), Humbrecht's 2014 Riesling Brand opens with a deep, very pure and stony/flinty bouquet of ripe and well-concentrated Riesling flavors. Full-bodied and round with very delicate, fine-grained acidity and lingering salinity, this is a very elegant and finessed Brand. Silky textured, piquant and highly elegant, this is a gorgeous and powerful but refined Brand with great expression. This is Riesling from granite soils and it was bottled with 8.9 of residual sugar and a total acidity of 7.5 grams per liter, with a pretty amazing pH of 3.0 for granite soils (after the alcoholic and malolactic fermentation).
Winespectator / James Suckling (96)
A dense and linear riesling with sliced limes, lemons and flint. Bright and precise. Full-bodied, layered and beautiful. Great finish to this. Big and flavorful. Yet not showy.
