1994 Zind-Humbrecht Riesling Rangen de Thann Clos St. Urbain
- Alsace Grand Cru
Community Tasting Notes 22
March 18, 2016 - TN: Terrific wines (Loire, Germany, Austria, Alsace & Rioja) as Jeff & Dena Morris return to NYC. (Royal Seafood, NYC): Continuing the theme of muscular wines, this one takes first prize! Truly a monumental dry wine. It's large scaled with incredible depth and length. Ripe pineapple and stone fruits dominate the nose and palate with a strong earthy character and framed by a towering wall of structure. The flavors last and last and finish with a pleasantly bitter pith note. Tremendous showing and my non sweet WOTN. A.

March 18, 2016 - Mostly-Riesling jeeb with Jeff and Dena Morris visiting NYC (Royal Seafood, NYC): This is spectacular. A powerhouse of a Riesling - almost bone dry with incredibly fresh, vibrant pear and lemon fruit at the core, augmented by an array of stony, saline, smoke, and peaty flavours - almost reminiscent of some Islay single malts (minus the spirity notes). There's remarkable power and intensity to the flavours, yet it feels remarkably light and finessed on the palate, never heavy nor austere as I find with so many dry Rieslings. Amazing wine.

October 17, 2015 - Dinner at home with Bryan & Michelle. Very typical Rangen with lots of earthy, peaty notes. As expected for this wine. Rich and big on the nose and relatively dry and acidic on the palate and long finish. Plenty of life ahead for this wine. 50+13+13+9+9=94

April 25, 2015 - Drank at the big Zind Humbrecht dinner at home ( with Olivier in attendance! ) With the third course.
April 6, 2015 - Some Wines from a Spring Trip to France; 4/4/2015-4/11/2015 (Paris and Burgundy): Deep yellow. Viscous, medium weight, off dry, peachy fruit, excellent acidity and flintiness. Mature but fresh with only a trace of nuttiness at the end.
