Beautiful golden color and floral mineral complex notes followed by a lifted palate firm texture and long almost biting finish. Sweetness is all subsumed. Great with a variety of dishes from salmon sushi bake to roast chicken. Yum. Thirty one years young! — a month ago

Clos St. Urbain Rangen de Thann Gewürztraminer 2000

This is lovely. Deep amber in color. The nose is great- tea, spices, a touch of sherry, roses, orange rind, dried flowers. Lovely texture- glycerin and a beautiful balance of sweetness with acidity. Lovely — 5 months ago

Lovely creme brulee aspect with emphasis on the brulee part. VT does not have to be sweet and doesn't have to have botrytis, and this was a good example as it wasn't too cloying at all and had good lift.

Clos Saint Urbain Rangen de Thann Pinot Gris 2020

Pear, applesauce, lemon candy, ripe peaches, firecrackers, hint of white pepper on the nose. Nice creamy mouthfeel with pear, golden plum, candied lemon peel, powdered ginger on the palate. Needs a bit of time to warm up from the fridge and get some air after opening to become really great, but still going strong on the second day. — 3 months ago

Clos Windsbuhl Vendange Tardive Riesling 2011

Tasted at the same time as the 2011 Clos St Urbain. Same lovely deep golden colour. The nose seemed like it was going to be heavier and sweeter but the reverse: straight to a nice by acidity, with caramels, oak and a citrusy earl grey finish — 7 months ago

A bit bitter, but the fresh fruitiness compensates. Great for the price. If that’s what you’re in the mood for! — 8 months ago

Probably too young, but expected more for my $90. Luxurious mouth feel.  but not the depth of fruit I was anticipating.  — 3 months ago

Whites and reds from our recent Confrerie Saint Etienne dinner. I was fortunate to take home the last bottle, and I’m glad we have a few extras to keep hidden in the CSE cellar for a few years to see how they age.

This was paired alongside a Gustave Lorentz Gewurtztraminer Reserve, with the food being Lemon Sole. Wonderful pairing. Hardly any whiff of petrol here…more tropical than anything (guava, green pineapple), lemon and limestone. On the palate, this is one of the more commanding and deeply rich Alsatian Riesling’s I’ve had in a while. It’s nervy down the mid-palate, but really fleshed out on the sides…big time balance. Mineral streak, and total Alsatian vibe to it, but all dialed up to 11 (in a good way). Even over the course of dinner, this improved. Still on the upswing.
