  • About this winery

    Olivier Humbrecht is one of the world's most renowned winegrowers. He is a Master of Wine and has been described by Robert Parker as the greatest white winemaker on earth. Yet he is very soft spoken, humble, and self-deprecating, which makes him perfectly suited to his assumed role as a global ambassador of wine. He is a champion of terroir, biodynamic farming principles, and non-interventionist winemaking, whose family have been winegrowers in Alsace for 12 generations (since 1620). He is...

    2010 VINTAGE:
    Great example of Pinot Gris, with tropical fruits, barbecued bananas and white peaches on the nose. The palate is much more refined than expected from the blockbuster nose, and 49g/l residual sugar is perfectly balanced. Complex stuff.

    Stephan Reinhardt, October 2015

    2012 VINTAGE:
    I would not call the 2012 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain a dessert wine, but with 38 grams per liter of residual sugar and 14.5% of alcohol it is really sweet although the acidity is vibrantly mineral. The wine is beautifully clear and precise on the nose, indicating ripe and healthy grapes, orange blossoms and loads of fruits. The purity and elegance on the palate is as fascinating as its salinity and refreshing vibration, which give the full body a swinging and almost buoyant character. This is a great Pinot Gris from a very difficult and complicated vintage, especially for the Rangen.

    Ian D'Agata, April 2015

    2012 VINTAGE:
    Medium straw-gold color. Pure, highly aromatic nose combines orange zest, smoke and white truffle, with complicating notes of lemony, marmaladey botrytis. The strong botrytis character is obvious on the palate too, which offers an uncanny combination of volume and vivacity, with suave flavors of strawberry, ripe peach and pear nectar. Piercing acidity provides outstanding clarity and cut on the very long finish. A wine of mesmerizing complexity and impeccable balance, though not the richest or most powerful Clos Saint-Urbain ever (for example, both the 2009 and 2010 are bigger wines). I have long believed this bottling to be Zind-Humbrecht’s single best wine and this vintage makes my case.
