This has such attractive, fresh perfume with sweetly floral aromas, as well as sweetly fragrant and ripe lychees, peaches and roses. The palate is very attractive and succulent with such impressive concentration of lychees. Some honey and pastry, too. This is stunning. Full and gently sweet. Drink or hold. - James Suckling

This is a hard grape to balance: underripe, and it's bitter and hard, and if overripe, it's soft and cloying. This shows perfect equilibrium, and justifies the reputation of Rangen as a top Grand Cru. It's lush and opulent on the nose, with aromas of stone fruits, yet shows rigour. On the palate it's very concentrated and fulll-bodied, but it has ample grip and spice, and while a touch sweet (with 26 grams per litre of residual sugar), it's also complex and intense. The finish is silky, elegant and very long. Drinking Window 2020 - 2036 - SB, Decanter

Honey, crushed mint, pineapple juice and ripe peach on the nose make for a complex combination of flavors. The palate of this wine bundles these in a zesty, concentrated, layered package conveying zest, fruit and smoke. At the core, however, there is power and considerable drive. This wine is lovely now but will evolve for the coming decade if not longer. The finish is off dry to medium sweet and zesty. Drink 2020–2040. - Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast

Ashy smoke and flint notes form a minerally overtone that leads the way in this creamy, full-bodied Gewürztraminer, layered with flavors of honeycomb, baked apricot, preserved lemon and biscuit. Dense and seamlessly knit, with the rich flavor range swathing a firm, well-defined frame of acidity that creates a mouthwatering impression on the smoky finish. Drink now through 2029.
