Rangen is one of the most famous Grand Cru vineyards in Alsace. Volcanic soil and almost every vintage, we can pick out Rangen wines in a blind by just nosing it.
Pale yellow gold color. The nose is classic Rangen with all its mineral and smoky intensity. Still quite restrained and without any varietal influence, the palate shows right from the start a great subtle volcanic influence and a quiet strength, still on its reserve but very persisting. Dry and full bodied. This wine basically doesn’t change once open for weeks! The character of the vineyard shows more on the palate for the moment. The finish is dry and pure, without any influence of over ripe character. It does remind me a lot of the 1990! With an average yield of only 25hl/ha, this is extremely low yield!
