Grossi Laüe is the Alsatian equivalent to Burgundy’s Grand Cru or Germany’s Grosses Gewächs classification, so it’s basically the best of the best. This is a fabulous example produced from a selection of the finest plots of the Hugel estate in the heart of the Grand Cru Schoenenbourg, an area dedicated to Reisling for centuries. Incredible honeyed richness with layers of citrus and very subtle spice once it starts to open up. This would make a delicious alternative Christmas lunch white.
