Gewurztraminer Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain Rangen VT, Domaine Zind-Humbrecht 2000
The mind-boggling 2000 Gewurztraminer Rangen de Thann Clos St.-Urbain Vendanges Tardives has the potential to merit a perfect score when its youthfully unevolved personality blossoms. This concentrated monster displays an unreal depth of fruit, huge levels of extract, and prodigious balance. Cherries, raspberries, currants, papayas, mangoes, and jammy apricots are interspersed with spices in this massively complex wine's flavor profile. Full-bodied, oily-textured, and potent, it is Gewurztraminer essence. Other-worldy! Projected maturity: 2008-2030.
