95 Domaine Zind-Humbrecht, Clos Saint Urbain Rangen de Thann Pinot Gris

Boisterously spicy, decadent nose of gerkhins and herbs de provence. Intense minerality governs the full, fuzzy peach skins and apricots on the palate. Bold acidity and structure, yet still silky and almost glycerine going down. A glorious proclamation of Alsatian terroir and the masterful hands of Olivier Humbrecht. Though a bit cloying at times, this wine is powerful, expressive, and enlightening with many, many more years ahead.
