Wine Advocate Notes
"92 points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker's The Wine Advote: "" Due to drosophila suzukii that badly affected all the blue-skinned grapes and caused severe selections, the 2014 Gewurztraminer Roche Calcaire is the only Gewurz produced that year at Zind-Humbrecht. ”We probably lost as much as 50% of the crop in some places, but also feared that the resulting wines would not be at the level one can expect from a Grand Cru vineyard. So, all our Windsbuhl, Hengst and Goldert vineyards were declassified into this cuvee,” says Olivier Humbrecht. The resulting wine has a deep, pure, fresh and spicy nose with classic floral and fruity Gewurz and orange/mandarin aromas. Full-bodied, round and very elegant, this is a mouthful of vivacious, vibrant, well-structured yet also refined Gewurz; the salinity and purity is really stimulating and lifting the medium-dry 17.9 grams of residual sugar. The long and fresh finish reveals the firm, but fine tannin structure and really good concentration of this excellent Gewurztraminer from a very difficult vintage. Yield is 27 hectoliters per hectare. Bottled in August 2015 with 14% alcohol. Enjoy with smoked meat, fish, cheese or spicy food over the next 10+ years."" 2/17"
James Suckling Notes
"92 Points, James Suckling: ""A very intense gewurz displaying orange peel, almonds and spices. Full-bodied, off-dry and dense with spices and dried nuts. Some cloves, too. The top single vineyards of gewurz were blended into this because of the difficulty of the vintage. Drink now."" 12/16"
