Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urbain Grand Cru 2013


Lobenberg: Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urbain Grand Cru, ein Name wie Donnerhall. Dafür steht Zind Humbrecht! 12,5% Alkohol, 4,5 Säure bei nur 5,8 Gramm Restzucker. Vulkanische Böden in Südexposition. Was für eine Nase! Mango, Passionsfrucht, getrocknete Aprikosen, superreifer Pfirsich, reife Orange. Die volle Exotik aber nicht schwülstig, eher versammelt und zum Reinspringen lecker. So ganz anders als der pfälzische Windsbühl. Smaragd Dürnsteiner Kellerberg aus der Wachau, aber sauberer, weniger barock, und mehr durchscheinende Mineralität. Im Mund noch klarer, alle Früchte der Nase, aber mittig und zentriert, auch hier wieder fern vom Barock. Das ist ein ungemein tolles Mundgefühl, mild und doch sehr saftig! 97-98/100


Galloni über: Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urbain Grand Cru

-- Galloni: ale, gold-tinged yellow. Very deep but reticent aromas of fresh citrus fruits, chlorophyll and stone. Then bright and fresh in the mouth, conveying sneaky concentration and power to the dense citrus, mineral, mint and green apple flavors. Lively acidity gives this big wine a lovely light touch, making it seem more graceful and less powerful than usual for Rangen. These grapes were harvested between October 15 and October 20, which is not especially late for this vineyard (in really cold years, Humbrecht harvests his Rangen vines at the end of October or even early November). - Ian D'Agata 96+/100


Parker über: Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urbain Grand Cru

-- Parker: The color of the label is exactly the same as of the citrus colored 2013 Riesling Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain which was picked very late and sourced only from the oldest vines (averaging 63 years). Very deep and flinty/stony on the citrus-flavored nose (which is somewhat greenish and more on the lime site in the beginning), it needs a lot of aeration (or years in a cold cellar) to open up and reveal more of its complexity, with garnished floral and herbal aromas. Full-bodied, rich and extremely mineral on the palate, this is a powerful yet bone dry, very pure and tight, extremely focused and rocky Riesling beauty, showing a great mineral expression of its unique volcanic origin. The purity, freshness, tension-filled length and compact structure is as mind-blowing as is the steep, terraced and extremely rocky vineyard itself, which is located in the southern part of Alsace; due to its altitude of 350 to 450 meters (!) and straight neighborhood of the Vosges, the grapes ripen very slowly. That's why the Rangen Riesling is the last that is usually picked at the domaine. The finish of the 2013 is lemon-fresh, highly mineral and extremely flinty and salty, and so is the aftertaste of this flowing volcanic rock monument. An aristocratic Must Buy for all Riesling lovers. 95/100
