An iconic wine revealing a perfectly balance between tension and sweetness. Seductively subtle. More info

This cuvée is produced exclusively from the old Pinot Gris vines of Rangen, planted here in 1963. It’s not easy to make a good dry Pinot Gris, but they are helped on this terroir with Rangen’s volcanic soil, lending edginess to this often too well-rounded varietal. The nose reveals wet stone, smokiness, citrus and a hint of chalk; whilst the palate has good balance, tension and a slight sweetness tempered by its fine acidity. This is an excellent wine, pairing well with grilled fish or white meats.

Pinot Gris Sélection de Grains Nobles Grand Cru Clos Saint-Urbain Rangen de Thann Zind-Humbrecht (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 9°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Volaille aux morilles, Rougets grillés, Feuilletés au roquefort.

    Information about domain Zind-Humbrecht

    Zind Humbrecht was created in 1959 as a result of the merger of the wine producing operations of the Humbrecht family in Gueberschwihr and the Zind family in Wintzenheim. The Humbrechts are a very old wine-making family, who have been passing their skills from one generation to the next since the Thirty Years War (1620). The property has 40 hectares and is managed according to biodynamic principles. Zind Humbrecht has long been established as one of Alsace's most reputable producers. Léonard Humbrecht has placed quality over quantity, developing superb terroirs that have been neglected because they are too difficult to work, such as Rangen in Thann. Today, Olivier Humbrecht and his father are only interested in exceptional terroirs; their insistence on quality, combined with virtuoso technical ability, enable them to produce exceptionally dense, complex wines that are always respectful of the characteristics of the grape varieties and the terroir.
