This wine isn’t produced every vintage and only in very small volumes. It is made from Pinot Gris vines that were planted between 1978 and 1995 in the Rangen vineyard in Thann. In extreme vintages like 2015, there is a clear difference with the oldest vines and Olivier Humbrecht feels that they should be separated. Younger vines would often have less deep roots only sometimes a slightly higher crop, explaining the difference. It still originates from a superb vineyard and the volcanic rock influences strongly the taste and style of this wine. Harvested the same day as the older vines, it had lower potential alcohol, no noble rot and was therefore able to ferment dry.
