Description of the wine Zind 2002

Made from the usual three grapes varieties: pinot auxerrois (50%, from Clos Windsbuhl, Herrenweg & Rotenberg), 15% pinot blanc (Herrenweg) and 35% chardonnay (Clos Windsbuhl). In 2002, even the Herrenweg vineyard had great acidity and all three grapes showed consistent equal ripeness. The maturation was slow but constant and long, finishing at ripeness slightly higher than usual for this wine. Very long fermentation until October 2003.

Tasting notes

01/2004 : The 2002 shows powerful exotic/fruity aromas on the nose, rich, unctuous but well delineated mouth, thanks to its good acidity. It appears even more aromatic than the 2001 and also shows more weight on the palate.
