2014 Zind Humbrecht "Rangen de Thann Clos St-Urbain" Riesling Grand Cru Alsace

SKU #1386019 97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A fabulous 2014 with amazing aromas of spices, light cheese and walnuts. Full body, dried lemons, limes, stones and saltiness. Pumice as well and a layered, velvety texture. A joy to taste. Inner quote mark (10/2016)

96 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark What to mention first? A hint of mossy earth, chamomile tisane, Cox Orange Pippin apples or lemon zest? All of these aromas dance on the nose. They are still totally shy on the taut, dry and concentrated palate. For now, it is mossy citrus that is most aromatic while rich fruit still needs to unfurl. This strikes a note of utter purity, of something soaring and bright. Right now this is totally brisk, invigorating and refreshing but its true colors won't show for some time. (AK) Inner quote mark (4/2017)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2014 Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urbain is pure, precise and mineral on the nose, with flinty and speculoos aromas. Full-bodied, round and elegant on the palate, this is a rich, intense and firmly structured yet also pure, vital and piquant Riesling. It is full of tension but also finesse and a really dry, stimulating taste (just three grams of residual sugar). The finish is long, tight and very complex, and reveals firm tannins due to 18 hours of whole-cluster pressing. (SR) 94+ Inner quote mark (2/2017)

94 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Cool aromas of green apple, lychee, chlorophyll, powdered rocks and crystallized ginger, lifted by a whiff of orange peel. Dense and quite dry, displaying superb precision to the stone and spice flavors, which are complemented by a suggestion of chewy tropical fruits. Classic Riesling that finishes long and with superb cut and focus. Made from roughly 50-year-old vines. (ID) Inner quote mark (3/2017)

94 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark A muscular Riesling from the volcanic soils of Rangen, this is golden in color and in its super-concentrated flavors of peach. There’s salty warmth to the wine’s distinctive minerality, captured here in a youthfully powerful wine that feels graceful and elegant. It finishes with cool, clean purity of fruit. The relatively high elevation (1,150 to 1,475 feet above sea level) and proximity to the Vosges Mountains makes this a late-ripening site, while the steep, south-facing slope facilitates that slow ripening. It’s a pretty glorious 2014. Inner quote mark (12/2016)
