Famille Hugel Gewurztraminer Hugel Grossi Laue
Country: France, Alsace
Tasting Notes: Grossi Laüe signifies the finest vineyards in Alsace dialect and represents an equivalent to the German Grosses Gewächs or the Burgundian Grand Cru.
The wine's colour is young and deeply intense with hints of pale green, lime-tree foliage, straw yellow, lemon and a lightly silver sparkle. The legs are present, tight and voluptuous. The harmonious, smooth and refined bouquet is direct, clear, spontaneous, aromatic and full of the flavours typical of the Gewurztraminer grape with its hints of rose, lily, freesia, hawthorn, jasmine, reseda, lychee, pineapple, peony, honey, lily of the valley. The bouquet is full and generous, both elegant and delicately spiced. On the palate it fills the mouth with generous, full, juicy, and charming sensations and flavours which jostle in the mouth and invade the taste-buds with their energy and tenderness. Silky, soft, caressing, creamy whilst retaining the superbly astringent background presence so typical of a sophisticated Gewurztraminer. The perfumed and spicy after-taste is long-lasting, leaving persistent hints of cardamom and Szechuan pepper.
Varietal: 100% Gewurztraminer
Pairing: Its suave and long complex aftertaste will make it the ideal partner to strong cheeses and spicy dishes.
