Gewurztraminer Rangen de Thann 2006 Clos St Urbain VT- Zind-Humbrecht

 From the estate - Indice 2

 

Caution: The bottles of Alsace wine do not fit into the wooden boxes sold separately.

 

Tasting : Pale gold colour. The nose is imposing and powerful, showing lots of spices (pepper), dry herbs and flint/stone aromas. The palate is distinguished by a harmonious texture. It is obviously a powerful wine, but this is not apparent on the palate. The wine is in fact elegant and refined, with a nice combination of acidity and tannins that make it seem almost completely dry. The finish shows vitality and brings much pleasure. This is a wine that reflects well on a significantly cooler climatic influence in 2019, and therefore carries no heaviness.

Terroir: Gewurztraminer is the least represented grape variety on Clos-Saint-Urbain. Only a small area of half a hectare produces about 1500 bottles each year. Rangen has the ability to impose its taste and character on this aromatic grape variety, which alone is a tour de force. Rangen also produces a relatively dry style of wine. In almost all vintages, the Gewurztraminer Rangen ferments most vigorously. The steep south-facing slopes of Rangen are located at the bottom of a cooler valley and at a relatively high altitude for Alsace vineyards (over 350m). Gewurztraminer does not like these conditions, and this explains its rarity on this Grand Cru. However, the river Thur, which flows just below the slopes of the Rangen, moderates the climate and allows the cultivation of this grape variety if it is planted near the watercourse. The 2019 vintage was harvested much later than most other Gewurztraminers but fermented quickly, finishing almost dry.

Indice: Level of sweetness on the palate. Scale from 1 to 5.

1: analytically dry wine or wine that tastes dry. 2: not analytically dry, but the sugars are not obvious on the palate. Some tasters may find a slight roundness in the finish. These wines will taste dry with some bottle ageing. 3: medium sweetness, higher in the youth of the wine, which will gradually fade with age. 4: Sweet wine. 5: Sweet wine, very close to a Vendange Tardive.
