Tasting notes:

Quite a lot of candied fruit on this white with some fruit cocktail and tinned pineapple. Round and waxy, this is a little bit stewed on the finish. (JAMES SUCKLING – Août 2019)

The Zinnkoepfle had impressive weight and depth of flavour without being heavy. Plenty of ripe apricot fruit on the nose. Although a fruity style that is quite forward and rounded, there is some mineral bite on the mid-palate. The finish is fresh and lingering, perhaps thanks to the elevation of the cru. (Stephen Brook – 30 juillet 2020)
