User Reviews for Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Grand Cru Aoc Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain

Winemaker's Notes:

"A dry white, powered by crackling acidity and zesty white pepper and spice. Orange granita and hints of grapefruit showcase a pleasant sweet- and sour-balance, with floral, honey and smoke notes. Good intensity carries through to the lingering finish...93" WS 10/09 "Harvested October 3, its alcoholic fermentation very late but complete (at 13.1% alcohol, just 2 grams of residual sugar were left!), Humbrecht’s 2007 Riesling Rangen Clos Saint Urbain is marked by extreme smokiness often associated with this site, along with struck flint notes of a reductive sort that it exhibited also in cask. Grapefruit rind pungency and pineapple prickle inform a lean, bright, faintly oily palate and the wine lunges for your palate in the finish, gripping tightly with salt, iodine, peat, Szechuan pepper, and citrus oils. This, Humbrecht agrees, might be thought of as a marriage of the 2001 and 1996 renditions, except that it’s cleaner then either. You can expect it to need 6-8 years to reveal its true potential and to be a 15 or more year keeper...93" WA 04/10
