Wine Advocate-Parker :
The Zind-Humbrecht 2006 Riesling Heimbourg is overtly rich (though dry-tasting) and enveloping (at 14% alcohol); waxy-textured; loaded with distillate-like pit fruit esters and the piquancy of fruit pits and grapefruit rind; hints at truffle; and offers rich nut oils and honey in its long, soothing, billowing, persistently esterous finish. More predictably than most of the 2006 Rieslings at this address, it behaves a bit "like a dry vendange tardive" words I heard out of Olivier Humbrecht's mouth just seconds after recording them as part of my own note. "Twenty years ago," he adds by way of perspective, "my father would have sold a wine like this - with 9 grams of residual sugar - as vendange tardive. Today, it would not be accepted." I can imagine this being worth following for another 3-4 years.
