Tasting notes

Brilliant straw yellow colour. The volcanic terroir of Rangen dominates the aromatics of this young wine with all its power: gunflint, crushed rocks, good aeration will eventually bring out an aromatic palette of ripe white fruits. Although still on its reserve, this wine impresses with its complexity. The palate is caressing on the attack, ample, rich, and gradually reveals a powerful finish, warm then strict, especially when the acidity and the ripe tannins of the vintage finally manage to express themselves. This Rangen has a majestic intensity. What a wine!

This dry riesling masterpiece is full of seeming contradictions that give it a sense of mystery you very rarely find. So rich and concentrated, yet also astonishingly vivid and precise, the aromas range from smoke to roses, although the most obvious note is the peachy one up front. Breathtakingly long and complete finish with so much mineral complexity. From biodynamically grown grapes.
