Cellar for 25 years or more. Decant for up to an hour before serving.

Domaine Zind-Humbrecht was founded in 1959, through the merger of two old wine-making families. The Humbrecht family has been working the Alsace hills for a very long time, but mostly as humble grape growers, never bottling or branding wine under their name. That changed with the marriage of Léonard Humbrecht and Geneviève Zind.

Throughout the 1960s and 70s, Domaine Zind-Humbrecht set their sights on rejuvenating the region of Alsace. They collected several abandoned prime plots, some of which have become modern-day Grand Crus. The Rangen de Thann is one of these, a vineyard of the rarest quality, located in the most southerly tip of Alsace.

This Riesling Grand Cru is a vivid, deep yellow, and exhibits an explosive nose of flint, gunpowder and apple. The palate brings notes of lemon, lime and green apple skin, with a slightly viscous saline texture. However, this wine is unique for its depth of stony minerals and smoke. It is bone dry throughout, with a long, exhilarating finish. This is a first-class example of one of Alsace’s prime vineyards and is perfect for a big occasion or longer-term cellaring. It is worthy of drinking alone, but will also be fantastic with Camembert, Brie, or a creamy sauce.
