Super smoky with enormous depth, but also incredibly precise and pristine with a salt, savory and mineral finish that doesn't want to stop. In spite of that unique personality and that there is a couple of decades of aging potential, it's so easy to enjoy right now. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.
A wine where the Montrachet analogy sings out: the Riesling is rich and unctuous to smell, with bread and cream notes as well as the soft fruits and the hum of stone behind. The palate seems astonishingly dense, analogous to a weighty mineral paste, but alive and dancing not only with vivid fruit acids but also with the speckle of strange stone flavour. Not only magnificent in its own right, but the perfect wine to share, and perhaps to analyse, whenever debates surface about what ‘minerality’ might be in wine. (AJ)
An intriguing nose combines smoke, flint, crushed citrus leaves and aromatic bergamot zest. The palate picks up some of those same ethereal citrus notes and underlines them with ripe Amalfi lemon freshness and more juicy ripe citrus like mandarin and aromatic tangerine. This is concentrated, alive, and electric with all manner of citrus and a vivid force of life. What a joy to drink now— hard to resist in fact—but this being dry Riesling we know that this has even more pleasure in store. Drink now–2035. (AI)
The 2016 Alsace Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Riesling Clos Saint Urbain displays a luminous yellow color and a fascinating bouquet of perfectly ripe Riesling fruit intertwined with very particular smoky/flinty and spicy notes that add fascinating complexity, finesse and elegance. On the palate, this is a lush, powerful but also refined, finessed and silky-textured Riesling with stunning purity, mouth-watering salinity and great intensity of fruit and mineral expression. It is less powerful than in other years but very elegant and still powerful enough, so very well-dosed and absolutely stimulating already today. (SR)
