» Sometimes the same vintage of a wine is listed at different prices. That's because some vendors are more aggressive and want a quick sale. We recommend buying the bottle with the best price, it's the same as the other bottles unless there's a condition note indicating otherwise. »Other times there's a reason for different prices for the same wine and vintage. For example, bottles with defects such as a torn label or low ullage level generally sell for a discount vs. wine with no defects.

98 Points Robert Parker

In 1999, Robert Parker called the 1994 Gewürztraminer Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Rangen de Thann Clos St Urbain Selection de Grains Nobles "a quintessential sweet Gewürztraminer" and scored it 99+ points, because he considered it "''off the charts'' in terms of flavor extraction, balance, quality, and the lavish quantity of extract and intensity". Well, I did not know it when Olivier poured me this wine (and I am sure that if he knew about the legendary status of his wine in our data base, he at least he did not mention it), so I was free to take my own notes. Bernstein color. Deep, clear and very stony nose, crushed stones, wet volcanic rocks, malty notes, herbs, dark honey, peanut butter, dried apricots, orange zest -- all here what makes the Rangen unique. On the palate, the wine is very clear, deep and precise, very sweet but also fresh and piquant, and provided with a lovely tannin structure that gives the proper backbone to this highly intense and elegant, superbly sweet but balanced SGN, which is as delicate as drinkable. Memorable in every respect. Olivier Humbrecht says, "The wine was picked at 160° Oechsle and harvested with no selection, so we have the whole crop in this wine like only in 1986, 1989, 1994 and 1998."
