Food Pairings for Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris Alsace Grand Cru Aoc Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain
Rangen is by far our most difficult vineyard to work. Grass is not always an option, as the Rangen is made of a very poor volcanic sedimentary soil – big, broken chunks of dark heavy angular rocks – that can be very dry in summer, not allowing any competition to the vines. What is exceptional here is that this rock does break down eventually and manages to produce some very small amount of high mineral content clay that gets trapped in the deeper cracks of the soil. Of course, the roots of the vines can only get there after many years of struggle, but once there; they are growing very well and become stress resistant.
