The nose is still tight and needs time to express the complex smoky and gunflint Rangen character. The palate shows great structure and power with ashes, slate and peppery aromas. The harmony of the 2013 vintage is built around the acidity, tannins and a medium sweetness. Elegant and restraint finish. Fabulous and age worthy Rangen.

Wine EnthusiastThe subtle, rounded but rather aromatic perfume of peach skins and apricot compote on the nose is utterly seductive-there is a promise of oriental riches and exotic spice but above all pure, glowing peach fruit. The palate is in total focus: while some residual sugar illuminates every last vestige of fruit, there is guiding central force that never lets this slip into the merely opulent. A masterful tightrope walk amidst plump fruit and mineral precision with a finishing, pleasantly bitter edge of marzipan.

Wine SpectatorRich and vibrant, with flavors of peaches and cream, grapefruit granita, Key lime pie, ground anise and candied ginger, all backed by firm acidity and a smoky, minerally underpinning. Full-bodied and intense, this wine needs food or time in the cellar. Best from 2017 through 2030.
