  • 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...

    December 2016

    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. Made from biodynamically grown grapes.

    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.

    Stephan Reinhardt, February 2017

    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. Just 12.5% alcohol.
