Gewurztraminer Rangen de Thann 2013 Clos St Urbain - Zind-Humbrecht
Indice of sweetness on the palate: 4, sweet wine.
The Rangen de Thann is the most southerly of the Alsace vineyards. In his book, Where Alsace wines ripen, Henry Riegert writes: « from the Middle Ages those wines which ripen on the Rangen hillside figure amongst the most famous growths of the whole vineyard region ».
The Grand Cru Rangen de Thann, is situated at the exit of the valley, overlooking the village of Thann with the river Thur passing at the foot of the slope.
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.
Caution: The bottles of Alsace wine do not fit into the wooden boxes sold separately.
