Critic Notes

Surprising notes of pepper cress, musk, and smoke serve as the pungent calling card for botrytis in the nose of Schonleber’s 2007 Monzinger Halenberg Riesling Beerenauslese, which comes to the palate viscous and redolent of peach preserves, pear chutney, and caramel, the cressy nip of noble rot persisting up until a long, wafting, if (for the vintage) relatively soft finish. This was picked in an easterly section of the site where there is more water retention and hence earlier botrytis, although the wine’s sharp pungency and muskiness do not put me in mind of the best side of really fine, early noble rot. Perhaps I’m under-estimating the wealth of material here and it needed a bit more time in bottle to become more organized. Oct 2009, www.robertparker.com

Rangen de Thann Grand Cru
Following our masterclass with Olivier Humbrecht MW and tasting through his extraordinary collection, we haven't been able to forget the wines from the Grand Cru vineyard of Rangen de Thann. These are wines that are overwhelmingly dominated by their terroir, with an abundance of mineral tones over and above fruit-forward flavours. Decanter’s Andrew Jefford describes the Rangen vineyard as "the ...
