ZIND-HUMBRECHT ZIND-HUMBRECHT - Riesling Roche Granitique - 2017

ZIND-HUMBRECHT Riesling Roche Granitique 2017

91 Points

This is a blend from different sites that, as the name suggests, have granitic soils. A sizeable component of the blend comes from Grands Crus Brand and Sommerberg. The nose is delicate and not that expressive now. But it's fresh and crisp on the palate, with limpidity and finesse. There's fine acidity and a distinct minerality too. Long nutty finish.
