Description of the wine Riesling Thann 2001

Some of the youngest riesling vines from the Rangen vineyard were vinified separately in 2001 and produced this wine. At the opposite of the pinot-gris which was highly botritysed in this vineyard, the Riesling remained very healthy. The difference in maturity and yield were enough to justify the declassification into the village category. This wine fermented over 12 months and to the end of the sugars.

Tasting notes

01/2003 : Intense yellow, this wine develops strong toasty, smoky almost peaty aromas on the nose. The palate shows a dry structure, strong minerality, still rough and finishes with this typical bitterness often seen in this type of soil.
