Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2005 Pinot Gris Rangen Clos Saint Urbain is less influenced by botrytis than most of the estates 2005 Pinot Gris, and the wine finished at 15.3% alcohol and 28 grams residual sugar. Peat, humus, grapefruit zest, and smoldering leaves as well as peach preserves inform this wines pungent nose. But for all of its sheer girth, power, and almost hyper-typical Rangen pungency, this displays remarkable clarity and freshness. That along with the wines sheer density keep its complex, profound, honeyed finish from becoming ponderous and keep heat to a minimum. Humbrecht feels that this can be a twenty year wine, and I am inclined to concur.
