It retains a very youthful aspect that is intense with hints of light green, lime tree foliage, straw yellow, lemon yellow, and a nice slightly silvery shimmer. Very tight, smooth and sophisticated legs. Enticing, spontaneous, elegantly flavoured and perfumed, filled with harmony and sophistication in a perfect reflection of the Gewürztraminer grape variety with its aromas of roses, freesia, hawthorn, jasmine, mignonette, lychee, pineapple, citron, windflower honey, delicate spices, cardamom, white pepper and a lovely refreshing elegance.

Grossi Laüe signifies the finest vineyards in Alsace dialect and represents an equivalent to the German Grosses Gewächs or the Burgundian Grand Cru.

Famille Hugel owns an estate of 30 hectares of prime sites around the historic and picturesque town of Riquewihr in the heart of Alsace, where vineyards have been cultivated for more than 2,000 years, bringing wealth and prosperity to the region’s inhabitants. More than half of these vineyards are classified as Grand Cru: the Schoenenbourg, known for its Riesling, and the Sporen for its Gewurztraminer. All grapes are, and always have been, picked by hand. The Hugel estates are exclusively planted with the noble Alsace grape varieties and the vines have an average age of 35 years.
