Winery:Domaine Zind Humbrecht
Wine Name:Clos Jebsal Selection De Grains Noble
Variety:Tokay Pinot Gris
Robert Parker Rating:96
RP 96 points: I tasted three 1994 Selection de Grains Nobles wines from Zind-Humbrecht. These wines are made in frightfully tiny quantities, and are so rich that they make Chateau d'Yquem look like an under-nourished wine. Truly the stuff of legends, these SGN possess 15%-18% residual sugar. All three will age for 40-50 years, but will anyone wait that long? They are "off the charts" in terms of flavor extraction, balance, quality, and the lavish quantity of extract and intensity they possess. For those who have the riches of a Hollywood or sports super star, the 1994 Tokay-Pinot Gris Clos Jebsal SGN (96; $375.00) is undoubtedly superb. Nevertheless, that wine is eclipsed by two virtually perfect wines. All three wines possess remarkable acidity, which gives them blazingly clear definition - amazing in view of their out of this world extract levels.
