Grossi Laüe means ‘fine vineyards’ in Alsace dialect and is an equivalent term to the German Grosses Gewächs or the Burgundian Grand Cru, though much less official. It is a new range of wines from Famille Hugel replacing the old Jubilee range.
This is a selection of good quality Riesling plots on the Hugel estate in the heart of the grand cru Schoenenbourg, Alsace. It comes with a ‘Edition Limitée‘ (Limited Edition) mention on the label.
Elegant nose with good complexity: minerality, fresh citrusy aromas. Depth on the aromatic profile is provided by a discrete nutty character.
Good balance between a good acidity and just a little sweetness upfront quick balanced by the mineral acidic character that ends on a crisp finish.
Layered flavors of white pepper, lime, and freshly-cut grass.
This 2010 vintage Riesling wine feels still very young for a 6 years old. It should therefore have plenty of aging potential ahead to further open up and develop.
Enjoy within the next 10 years (<2026).
