2018 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rangen de Thann, Clos St Urbain, Zind-Humbrecht

This is the most southerly of the Alsace Grands Crus, noted since the Middle Ages for its superb wines. Its volcanic soils and steep slope mean the vines are naturally low yielding, which makes for concentrated and driven Pinot Gris, with a smoky top note. Exquisitely good in 2018.

2018 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rangen de Thann, Clos St Urbain, Zind-Humbrecht
Domaine Zind Humbrecht

Olivier Zind-Humbrecht is respected not just for his winemaking but also his stature as France’s very first Master of Wine, as well as being a downright nice guy. With 40 hectares of vineyards farmed biodynamically, he is famous for very low yields, and for producing wine from all four noble grapes. Olivier has pioneered a grading system for his wines, labelling one (dry) to five to indicate their sweetness, amongst other efforts to put Alsace and indeed, Zind-Humbrecht, on the fine wine map.
