Description of the wine

In 1989, 2 years after acquiring the Clos Windbuhl, we decided to plant Auxerrois and Chardonnay in the coolest part of the Clos, the closest to the forest. These two grape varieties were always blended together but in 2001 we were forced to release the wine as Zind ‘Vin de France’ because the chardonnay grape isn’t permitted in the AOC Alsace wine (only crémant d’Alsace). The muschelkalk limestone soil of the Clos Windsbuhl always brings a fantastic structure to this wine and quite an amazing longevity for the people with enough patience. The higher acidity commands long fermentation, but the wine finishes dry after a long ageing on the full lees.
