Zind-Humbrecht, Heimbourg, Pinot Gris 1996
2.0cm or less
93 points Wine Spectator
This really lights up the palate. Lots of power in this ripe, dense Pinot Gris. The crème brûlée, violet and guava flavors are deep and intense, set against an ironlike structure that blazes with minerality on the finish.
92 Points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 1996 Tokay-Pinot Gris Heimbourg exhibits a butterscotch, honeyed, exotic nose, full-bodied, glycerin-endowed, cherry-like flavors that ooze over the palate with layers of flavor. This thick, full-bodied wine possesses 1.5% residual sugar, yet tastes sweeter. It should continue to evolve and gain more complexity over the next 7-8 years, and last for 15 or more.
