  • 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...

    James Suckling, September 2015

    Crazy aromas of gun powder, dried pineapple and mango. Flint stone too. Full-bodied and lightly dry with a wonderful subdued and complex palate. Very long and subtle. Great gewurz.

    Jancis Robinson, March 2016

    Pale gold. Now the spice and apricot/orange fruit is starting to dominate the rose character, thought that is still there, and it is intensely scented on the palate. Rich, powerfully spiced and deep, honeyed, medium sweet and finely balanced. Rich in the mouth and still somehow with an overall elegance and delicacy. Very, very long.

    Stephan Reinhardt, October 2015

    Yellow-golden in color, the 2013 Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain (which was picked one day after the Riesling and stopped fermentation with 42 grams of residual sugar at 13.5% alcohol) opens with a flinty/stony, pure, lemon-fresh and highly complex bouquet that reminds me more of a natural perfume with cumin and orange flavors than a wine. Rich and oily, highly elegant, piquant and salty on the palate, this full-bodied, firmly structured though stimulatingly mineral wine is a beautiful rarity: only 0.5 of the 5.5 hectares of the Clos are planted with Gewurz (the lower part with the deeper volcanic soils, with 34-year-old vines on average), and the 2013 combines power and concentration with purity, finesse and a dancing acidity. It is very rare that you can have such a stimulating and complex Gewurz that is extremely difficult to spit even for car driving professionals. This is a Must Buy for both Rangen and Traminer freaks. And shame on you should you drink all you can grasp too early.
