2018 Riesling Grand Cru Rangen de Thann, Clos St Urbain, Zind Humbrecht

2018 Riesling Grand Cru Rangen de Thann, Clos St Urbain, Zind Humbrecht

Rangen de Thann is the most southerly of the Alsace Grands Crus, and the quality of its wines have been documented as far back as the 12th century. Olivier Humbrecht MW's immaculate vineyard work and low yields mean this 2018 Riesling has exquisite concentration and minerality. The volcanic soil of this grand cru produces tension and power in the wine. It is reserved in its youth, but you can feel the coiled energy beneath the surface, as well as the density of the 2018 vintage. The south-facing site gets fairly warm during the day, but chills down quickly at night, so the freshness is beautifully maintained.
