Delightful as a breeze on a summer afternoon, but a lot better with cheese. This is another impeccably balanced white from Zind Humbrecht, displaying luscious vanilla, candied peaches, honey, and spice in the nose, and smoky tropical fruit, apricots, and minerals in the mouth. Like all Zind-Humbrecht wines, the fruit is framed with bracing acidity to avoid any hint of flabbiness. If you can find any Zind Humbrecht wines at reasonable prices (such as this one, purchased on-sale from Premier Cru), jump all over them. - HK 2002-08-01
