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.

Tasting notes
Pronounced aromas of flint, earth and exotic spices precede notes of rich fruit and saline. A beautifully textured wine, with an almost velvety texture on the finish.

Technical notes
The Rangen de Thann Vineyard is located on a very steep south facing slope. The vineyard is planted on dark, rocky volcanic sedimentary soils and the vines average 48 years old. Indice 1
