95-97 VM / 95 JS / 94 WA / 94 WE

Medium straw-gold color. Pure, highly aromatic nose combines orange zest, smoke and white truffle, with complicating notes of lemony, marmaladey botrytis. The strong botrytis character is obvious on the palate too, which offers an uncanny combination of volume and vivacity, with suave flavors of strawberry, ripe peach and pear nectar. Piercing acidity provides outstanding clarity and cut on the very long finish. A wine of mesmerizing complexity and impeccable balance, though not the richest or most powerful Clos Saint-Urbain ever (for example, both the 2009 and 2010 are bigger wines). I have long believed this bottling to be Zind-Humbrecht’s single best wine and this vintage makes my case. Ian D’Agata – Vinous Media

A dense and rich style with flinty, burnt almond and very dried pineapple. Full-bodied, bitter and spicey. Big and rich with layers of fruit. Classic density and greatness. Made from biodynamically grown grapes. Drink now. James Suckling

I would not call the 2012 Pinot Gris Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain a dessert wine, but with 38 grams per liter of residual sugar and 14.5% of alcohol it is really sweet although the acidity is vibrantly mineral. The wine is beautifully clear and precise on the nose, indicating ripe and healthy grapes, orange blossoms and loads of fruits. The purity and elegance on the palate is as fascinating as its salinity and refreshing vibration, which give the full body a swinging and almost buoyant character. This is a great Pinot Gris from a very difficult and complicated vintage, especially for the Rangen. SR – The Wine Advocate

Zind-Humbrecht owns some great Grand Cru vineyards, perhaps none more so than the Clos Saint Urbain. This luscious, rich, sweet wine shows both power and intensity without losing any sense of structure. It's young, needing many years to show off its full potential. Drink from 2018.
