About this winery

Olivier Humbrecht is one of the world's most renowned winegrowers. He is a Master of Wine and has been described by Robert Parker as the greatest white winemaker on earth. Yet he is very soft spoken, humble, and self-deprecating, which makes him perfectly suited to his assumed role as a global ambassador of wine.

Notes about product

The Rangen de Thann is the most southerly of the Alsace vineyards. The Grand Cru Rangen de Thann is situated at the edge of the valley, overlooking the village of Thann with the river Thur passing at the foot of the slope.The respect for the vine and soil is very important for Olivier and is team of vineyard workers. All viticultural work is carried out by hand with the help of some horses to plough the vineyards with minimum impact of the soil. All vineyards have been certified organic and biodynamic since 2002.

Winemaking notes

All wines are fermented in traditional oak vats using native yeasts. No additives are used, and chaptalization is never carried out. The wines are left on their lees and ferment at there own pace, the wines are not fined. Very little sulfites are added and the wines are bottled after at least 18 months on the lees.

Tasting notes

This wine is spectatular and is an unmistakable example of Rangen. On the nose these intense flinty notes and aromatic herbal aromas. The palate is rich and powerful with good balance.
