    Alsace

    Alsace Terroirs with Olivier Humbrecht MW

    Alsace Terroirs with Olivier Humbrecht MW

    Alsace, from Terroir to AOCs with Olivier Humbrecht

    Join Olivier Humbrecht MW, owner and winemaker of Domaine Zind Humbrecht for an open discussion on the terroirs of Alsace and their impact on vine and wine. Olivier will demonstrate how today’s understanding of the multiple terroirs of Alsace is driving the region toward a more diverse and specific range of AOCs.

    Olivier is one of the world’s only winemakers to attain Master of Wine status. Biodynamically farmed, Domaine Zind Humbrecht produces some of Alsace’s most sumptuous and sought-after wines.

    The webinar will conclude with a tutored tasting of two of the domaine’s wines:


    2010 Riesling Heimbourg ($55/btl)
    93 points. A rich,dry white, with luxurious, tactile texture of raw silk, this offers a spicy mineral base and layered flavors of green melon, pink grapefruit zest, honey, fleur de sel and macerated peach, all structured by firm, mouthwatering acidity.
    Wine Spectator, 10/2012

    2010 Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urban Grand Cru ($100/btl)
    93 points. A lovely wine, with a minerally undertow and finely tuned acidity framing apricot, kumquat, acacia blossom, smoke and crystallized honey notes that show a hint of lychee. A zesty thread of spice winds through the wine and lingers on the subtle finish.
    Wine Spectator, 10/2012
