2006 Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl, Zind-Humbrecht

Olivier Humbrecht in Turckheim is one of the globally most important and renowned winemakers, and he stretches his art to the limit.
While other serious producers press for 4 hours, clarify the must during 48 hours and avoid malo-lactic transformation, Humbrecht presses for 18 hours, limits clarification to 4 hours and allows all wines to pass malo-lactic.

2006 Pinot Gris from the tiny Clos Windsbuhl, overlooking Hunawihr, is so pure, so focused, so elegant and so complete that no words can do it justice. Price: € 45
