Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2005 Pinot Gris Rangen Clos Saint Urbain is less influenced by botrytis than most of the estate's 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 wine's 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 wine's 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.
