The 2017 Alsace Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos Saint Urbain Riesling fermented very quickly and offers a pure and flinty note on the intense but (certainly) still reductive nose. Lush and juicy on the palate, this is a finely bitter Rangen with concentrated fruit, fine tannins and salty/mineral acidity. Very long and fresh, with rich and concentrated fruit but never without the purity of the Clos. A great wine that will need plenty of time. Stephan Reinhardt – The Wine Advocate

A very spice and sappy white with pine-nut and dried-apricot character to it all. Full body. Dry and spicy. Big and lively with loads of flavor in this style. From biodynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold. - James Suckling

Notes of flinty reduction combine with fresh green apple and lemon, giving an impression of smokiness. The palate is stony but offers depth and ripeness, with smooth fruit suggesting Amalfi lemon, Mandarin and grapefruit. Here and there a glimpse of Mirabelle plum appears, while the finish speaks of zestiness and barely unleashed power. Let this sleep for a while in the bottle. It will wake up and dazzle you. Drink 2025–2045. - Anne Krebiehl MW, Wine Enthusiast

The exceptionally steep Rangen site can produce great Rieslings as well as Pinot Gris, but they are not wines that always show well when young. This is still closed on the nose, with apple aromas and a bouquet of spices. The attack is fresh and sleek, but it's very concentrated and shows a discreet power without being overbearing. The backbone of acidity ensures firmness and grip on the finish, which is peachy, assertive, and long. Drinking Window 2021 - 2040. SB, Decanter
