The annual cycle of work, parallel with cycle of nature, consists of a number of interventions, comprising biological treatments against the diseases and others aiming at improving the quality. mong the latter, the pruning is particularly decisive. Too severe, it prevents the harmonious development of the vine, insufficient, the vine will overproduce unripen grapes. A this moment, the presence of Paul’s grandson Pierre-Paul Humbrecht, is of utmost importance to the vineyard, to prune correctly and at the right time. Given unfavourable climatic conditions, the harvest may suffer but when the seasons flow normally the right pruning will be rewarded by a juice of very high quality. hen the vine has had its budburst, the disbudding (selection of branches) and desuckering (supression of the growths resulting from sucker from the trunk), are made manually to avoid any harmful effect to the vine. During the bloom, trimming consists in shortening the end of the branches leaving just the right quantity Read more »

  • Cora, here's a link to a trip report I wrote when we visited Alsace last summer, hope you enjoy it.  Most definitely seek out some Alsace Riesling when you get a chance, especially some Grand Cru from a well known producer like Domaine Weinbach or Domaine Zind-Humbrecht. Read More

  • The majority of wines on the market these days are meant to be consumed within one to five years. This is a natural law. Producing wines that can sit in the cellar for decades is time-consuming and expensive. There is a time and place for wines that age and adventurous palates are required. Most all age-worthy wines will have high acid, tannin, ... Read More

  • Among the sparklers, Jacquesson's GVS beat out the Schramsberg BdN, though I like both wines. Good comparison since the Jacquesson was 55% PN and 45% chard. Not a version that they produce any more, to my knowledge. I really like that house and used to drink cases and cases of it last decade, including that vintage. Zero chaptalization, extended...

  • Interestingly, found a Montebello edged out a Dunn from the same mature vintage recently, though both could've been WOTN, with very tough competition from the Musigny. Two meals, one seafood and white, the 2nd red meat and red wine. Every single bottle gets my *buy* recommendation. Interestingly, was down in the tropics just north of the equator... Read More

    Wine review by MTripp

  • Like many foodies, I adore oysters on the half shell. One of my first jobs working in a professional kitchen as a kid, after I was promoted from the pot sink, was shucking oysters and serving them iced on the half shell. I got very adept at opening them very quickly – but of course, who doesn’t prefer to have someone open their oysters for them?... Read More

  • Zind-Humbrecht White Blend Zind 2005


    Fantastic white Alsace blend of chardonnay and auxerrois. For an '05 this is drinking great right now! Beautiful golden color, nose of creamy lemon pith and honey. On the palate there's more of that creamy lemon cheesecake along with ripe golden delicious apple, dried apricot, creme brulee, and some fine acidity to balance out the fruit. Read More

  • Domaine Zind-Humbrecht Zind 2011


    Brilliant clarity. Apple and vanilla nose with hints of tropical notes. Ample acidity - Almost effervescent. A little on the sweet side, but not nearly as much as I'd expect from the thick tears. Like the lemonade of Pinot Gris - both sweet and tart, round and lean. Read More

    Wine review by worldsmith

  • Sometimes grey matters. No pun intended. In this case it happens to matter a lot, yet in a very specific way. I recently wrote about Value Pinot Gris, and $20 Pinot Gris, but these were Gris in name only. Today I present a very modest selection of Pinot Gris, though in this case the wines are Alsace Pinot Gris and these are so distinctively diff... Read More

    From the article Grey, or Gray. Sometimes it matters.

  • I've just opened a bottle of Z-H Herrenweg de Turckheim GW 2006. Aroma is fine, as official descriptions, taste is already undefinible, but also in the line with what I've been reading about. The point that surprised me was the colour! Very dark old golden, almost red. Is it ok, it's the expected? Rodrigo Britto
