Winemaker Notes

The nose is unmistakable Rangen, showing intense flinty, aromatic herbal aromas. The palate is rich and powerful with good balance.

Savor as an aperitif or with simple dishes that showcase the wine.

Critical Acclaim

WE 96
Wine Enthusiast
This is a grandiose wine from the most southerly of Alsace’s grands crus. It is rich, certainly, although in balance without any hint of excess. A complex structure powers the intense fruits and generous ripe yellow and citrus flavors. Concentrated from low yields and old vines, this wine needs to age many years. Don’t touch before 2020.
WS 94
Wine Spectator
A bright, lip-smacking white, underscored by zesty minerality, this meshes a powerful structure of acidity and minerality with accessible flavors of peach skin, tangerine peel, plum, wet stone and ground ginger. The long finish resonates with hints of crystallized honey, smoke and stone. Drink now through 2029.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
The intense hailstorm that hit the Rangen vineyard in August of 2012 diminished the crop significantly. The remaining fruit produced an intensely concentrated wine that is dry and mineral driven. Lemon confit flavors give way to a wash of bright citrus, developing savory flavors of cheese rind on the finish. A flinty minerality holds it all together, but the wine is tightly wound and will benefit from a few years in the cellar.

Zind-Humbrecht Olivier Humbrecht  Winery Image
The Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was created in 1959 by the merging of two families, that on Zenon Humbrecht, viticulteur in Gueberschwihr, and that of Emile Zind, viticulteur in Wintzenheim, with the marriage of their children, Leonard Humbrecht and Ginette Zind. Before this date both families produced and sold their wines separately. Domaine Humbrecht had been passed from father to son since the Thirty Years War (1620). The vinification is now in the hands of Oliver Humbrecht, son of Ginette and Leonard. In 1995, Robert Parker called Oliver's 1993's "The wine of a genius".

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsatian Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsatian wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.
