Diminished in volume and in that sense representing a selection, Zind-Humbrecht’s 2006 Pinot Gris Clos Windsbuhl constitutes that share of their holdings in this cru that was not blended into one of the vintage’s two generic bottlings. Honey-and caramel-drizzled, brown-spiced poached pit fruit, along with banana cream, hazelnut puree, cocoa powder, and candied chestnuts inform an expansive and creamy palate.
