Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain 1996 Zind Humbrecht
€ 95,59 (in Vat)
The 1996 Riesling Rangen Clos St.-Urbain (13.5% natural alcohol) was closed, but it is another completely dry, formidably-endowed, exceptionally rich, medium to full-bodied Riesling that symbolizes the essence of this varietal. The color is medium gold. The wine reveals no evidence of botrytis, exhibiting ripe fruit, a profound minerality, and a full-bodied, blockbuster finish. It is in need of 1-3 years of cellaring. It should keep for 15 or more years.
Winespectator / James Suckling (92)
Dry, intense and austere, with an internal power and elegance that expresses its terroir, this '96 white is densely textured, smelling and tasting of flint, minerals and chamomile. Superb harmony, finesse and length.
