Pinot Gris Clos Jebsal Vendanges Tardives 2012 - Zind Humbrecht

From the estate

93+/100 Parker

  • Cellaring: Now to 2035.
  • Tasted by Stephan Reinhardt on October 30, 2015: "From 29-year-old vines on deep, rich gypsum marl soils, the golden-colored 2012 Clos Jebsal Vendange Tardive Pinot Gris offers a noble botrytis aroma with flavors of mint and orange, as well as aromas of sweet stone fruits and a touch of honey. Rich and very elegant on the palate, this vintage from a very steep 1.3 ha vineyard reveals great power, intensity and lingering minerality that mask the 15% alcohol of this expressive wine. I would keep it for another 5 to 20 years and serve it with foie gras."
  • Bottling :August 2013
  • Alcohol content :15°.
  • Residual sugar :73.0 g/l
  • Total acidity :3.7 g/l H2S04
  • pH :3.7
  • Yield :32 hl/ha
  • Optimum tasting :2018-2037+.
  • Average age of the vines :29 years
  • Terroir :Grey marl and gypsum (Keuper). South facing, terraces and steep slope

  

Description : Only Clos Jebsal will have produced a Late Harvest in 2012 (and no Sélection de Grains Nobles!). Unfortunately, the weather conditions were not favorable to the consistent development of noble rot. The weather was too dry in September, then deteriorated at the end of October, preventing the concentration of botrytis. The richness of the gypsum marls of the Jebsal had however allowed the development of botrytis. We harvested as usual in double selection (VT + SGN), but after pressing and it was obvious that the two selections needed to be blended together as the difference in maturity was not significant.

I love this site. Whether it's for old wines, or recent ones. The choice of partner estates is impressive, and allocations are sold at fair prices. Ludovic's advice is always excellent.
