Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris Alsace Grand Cru Aoc Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain 2010
"Green-tinged yellow. Smoky, flinty nose hints at peaty Islay scotch. Very sweet and concentrated, with harmonious acidity leavening the exotic character of the fresh and dried yellow fruit flavors flavors. This is actually quite primary. Long and bracing on the back end, finishing with a note of smoked meat. I would not be at all surprised if this wine lost some of its baby fat and went through a sullen stage in the bottle. For all its density, this is wonderfully bright on the aftertaste...93+" IWC 12/12
This wine was a surprise from every angle. With its beautiful amber color and a floral bouquet, it satisfied my expectations. It had a slight effervescence, and a rich and complex flavor. It was well worth the price ($74 US), and I used it to celebrate my college graduation.

External Reviews for Zind-Humbrecht Pinot Gris Alsace Grand Cru Aoc Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain
A rich style, this offers vanilla, butterscotch, dried orange peel and apricot aromas and flavors. Balanced, yet on the sweet side, so choose a food pairing accordingly. Has fine concentration and cut. Drink now through 2014.
Pale yellow-gold. Aromatic, muscat-like nose melds honeydew, chlorophyll, mint and flowers. Supple, clean and easygoing, with lovely inner-mouth perfume to the stone fruit flavors. This is a bit higher in residual sugar and acidity than the 2004. In a distinctly round style, finishing with lush flavors of peach and spices.
Highly aromatic, flinty nose of smoke, brown butter and sweet corn. Smoky, flinty flavors are deep, generous and mouthfilling. Powerful and quite dry, but has the sheer flavor and extract to buffer its 15+% alcohol. Stephen Tanzer. A Pinot Gris wine from Alsace in France. 1997 Zind Humbrecht, Domaine Pinot Gris Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain 750ml
