1998 Zind Humbrecht "Clos Saint Urbain Rangen de Thann" Pinot Gris Vendange Tardive

SKU #1052800 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The extraordinary 1998 Pinot Gris Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain Vendange Tardive has a mouth-watering nose of candied blood oranges lightly dusted with botrytis-caused spiciness. Creamed red, yellow, and white fruits are interspersed with earth, minerals, and gravel in this complex, concentrated, full-bodied behemoth. Its massive personality is well-buttressed by its superb acidity. Additionally, this muscular yet graceful wine has an unbelievably long finish. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2025. Inner quote mark (6/2000)

94-96 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Flinty, minerally aromas of earth and barley sugar. Thick, sweet and smoky, with great flavor intensity and pronounced terroir character. Not at all heavy; in fact, this is rather elegant for a wine with 14.5% alcohol and 75 g/l r.s. Should make a great bottle. Inner quote mark (8/1999)

93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Like a gymnast, this lithe white glides across the palate, its underlying strength and tautness merely supporting the dried apricot, guava, honey and candied citrus. Finish just melts away. Delicious. Inner quote mark (11/2000)
