Food Pairings for Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Alsace Grand Cru Aoc Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain
The nose is very typical of Rangen. It shows lots of smoke, flinty aromas, which almost appear reductive or at least very mineral. The nose says it clearly: this is Rangen wine, as tough as it can be at this early stage and as dry as possible. Certainly the bottling will open the wine, as it is still on lees today! The palate is very elegant and has just the right power to match the volcanic character. The finish is quite long, with almost smoky/grilled flavours. The ripe acidity brings elegance. This is a wine full of character and personality!
