Description of the wine Riesling Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain 2000

The Rangen vineyard enjoyed perfect conditions to produce beautiful grapes. Unlike the Pinot Gris in this vineyard, the Riesling developed very little noble rot, but was harvested very ripe.

Tasting notes

12/2001 : The fermentation was highly vigorous and transformed much more sugar than I would have expected at the beginning. The result is a 2000 which is powerful, showing a smoky flinty nose, so typical of its volcanic origin, and a long, rich mouth, not really completely dry, but with no trace of softness thanks to a classic acidity. If I would dream of a Riesling in the Rangen vineyard, it would certainly be the 2000.
