The bouquet features pronounced aromas of flint, peaty smoke, minerals and ripe white stone fruit. The dense and layered palate offers notes of ripe pineapple and honey. Excellent length and balance between sweetness and acidity.
Wine Spectator 93 points - Minerally and aromatic, offering lightly honeyed flavors of apricot, guava, crystallized pineapple and smoke, with hints of white pepper and cardamom. Luscious yet well-cut, with juicy, mouthwatering acidity and a lingering finish. Drink now through 2025. -AN  (Oct 31 2012)

Vinous 93 points - Green-tinged yellow. Smoky, flinty nose hints at peaty Islay scotch. Very sweet and concentrated, with harmonious acidity leavening the exotic character of the fresh and dried yellow fruit flavors flavors. This is actually quite primary. Long and bracing on the back end, finishing with a note of smoked meat. I would not be at all surprised if this wine lost some of its baby fat and went through a sullen stage in the bottle. For all its density, this is wonderfully bright on the aftertaste. (ST) 93+ Points  (Nov 2012)

Wine Advocate 92 points - The Humbrechts? 2010 Pinot Gris Rangen Clos Saint Urbain ? from vines as strongly influenced by noble rot as any of theirs this vintage ? finished fermenting at a modest 13.6% alcohol, but at the price of 49 grams of residual sugar, a level that in the not too distant past would have been deemed excessive for a V.T. That said, the sweetness is by no means excessive and I guessed the wine to have half as much residual sugar as it does. Quince paste and candied citrus rind are thus admirably supported, as well as strikingly complimented by scents and flavors of bacon fat that could be from Gewurztraminer, as well as by peat- and kelp-like notes typical for this site. Expansive and long, this impressively rich Pinot Gris will probably be best left alone for a decade and reward revisits through at least 2030. (Aug 2014)

The Humbrecht family has been winegrowers in Alsace since 1620 but the Domaine came by its current name when Leonard Humbrecht married Genevieve Zind in 1959. Located in the heart of the Herrenweg vineyard, Leonard significantly expanded the familyís holdings to include an enviable collection of Grand Cru and other high quality vineyards. The Domaine is currently managed by Leonardís son, Olivier Humbrecht, the only Alsacian winemaker to attain M.W. status. A staunch advocate for biodynamic farming, Olivier tailors every aspect of viticulture and winemaking based on terroir. Whether a single vineyard or a blend, place and vintage are clearly and unmistakably expressed in each wine.
Technical notes
The vines, averaging 41 years old, are planted on a very steep, south facing slope of Rangen de Thann Vineyard to sedimentary volcanic rocks. Indice 5
