Wine rated : 19,5/20 (Vin de qualité exceptionnelle)
Vineyard rated (guide 2019) : 5*****Stars (Exceptional producers, representing the very top of quality in France and in the world)

About this wine : Riche, notes lardées très nobles, léger grillé, bouche ample avec encore un moelleux qui doit se fondre, confort de bouche de grande classe, salivant et frais malgré sa concentration.

About the vineyard : For several decades, this estate has embodied an ideal of the absolute in terms of great wines of terroir. Léonard Humbrecht had visionary by acquiring superbly located plots on the Rangen: Clos Windsbuhl, Clos Jebsal, Brand or Hengst, his son Olivier magnifies the expression of the soils with an incredible intensity and power. The style of the estate had an inflection with the transition to biodynamy, in the late 1990s, wines still being more tense and more rights than in the past, even though they retained their wealth and their density. Entry-level wines until the Herrenweg cuvées, are expressive fairly quickly. On the other hand, as soon as someone enters the circle of the great terroirs, a cellaring in the bottle is generally required, the time that the wines express the best high balance between minerality and concentration.

About this wine :

Je ne dirais pas que le Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain 2012 est un vin de dessert, mais avec ses 38g/L de sucres résiduels et ses 14,5% d'alcool il reste sucré bien que l'acidité soit vibrante et minérale. Le vin est magnifique, net et précis au nez, dévoilant des raisins mûrs et sains, des arômes de fleur d'oranger et du fruit en masse. Pure et élégante, la bouche est fascinante avec cette sensation de salinité et de fraîcheur vibrante; la bouche est structurée, tout en mouvement, au caractère presque robuste. Ce vin est un grand Pinot Gris issu d'un millésime compliqué et tout particulièrement pour le Rangen.

Wine rated : 18,5/20 (Grand vin)

About the vineyard : More than ever, this major estate flies high the colours of Alsace, with a range of wines that are difficult to ignore. Tireless ambassadors of their wines and the region, Olivier Humbrecht and his father Léonard have long understood the importance of the work in the vineyard. Involved in biodynamic viticulture, Olivier became one of the leaders in France. Installing in a huge cellar, in Turckheim, yet increased the quality. Aware of the stalemate caused by the increase of the maturity of the grapes and its corollary, the rise of residual sugars, the winemaker has returned  to drier wines since a few vintages, keeping their strong personality with a special concentration. As all great Alsatian, they take their size with a few years of cellaring.

bue en 04/19. Une robe d'un jaune très soutenu pour un PG. Le nez est mielleux et la bouche nerveuse. Beau vin de garde

L'AOC des vins d'Alsace et Alsace Grand Cru a été obtenue suite à de longues discussions au plan national. En 1935, un premier décret met en place les AOC françaises, mais les pourparlers avec l'INAO, organisme certificateur, ont été interrompus du fait de l'annexion de l'Alsace par l'Allemagne durant la  Seconde Guerre mondiale. Ce fut également la première appellation ...
