“GROSSI LAÜE” (great growth in the Alsace dialect). These wines mark a veritable return to the Hugel family’s timeless cultural values, profoundly anchored in its historic vineyards.

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

A Pinot Noir with real minerality, profound and deep which year after year comes closer to that of a Côte d'Or ! A truly profound and complex red wine, aged 8 to 10 months in partially renewed oak barriques.

Tasting notes by Serge Dubs, World's Best Sommelier 1989

A nice and profound colour with a bright and youthful base, a very nice density for this youthful Pinot Noir grape with a good tannic and anthocyanin presence, ruby red, the intense garnet colour of morello cherry and an added hint of purple. The legs are dense, consistent, regular and sparkling with vitality.
The aroma is complex and generous, very expressive and open, with the hints of small red fruit so typical to a healthy and perfectly ripe Pinot Noir grape. Raspberry, strawberry, morello cherry, black-current, cranberry, hawthorn blossom, black cherry with a nuance of vanilla, wood-smoke, violet, and hawthorn blossom. The aroma is harmonious and full.
On the palate the contact is harmonious, smooth whilst retaining a generous and long-lasting flavour. A nice tannic structure that sits well with its solid ripeness which gives a firm foundation and length.
The finish is full-flavoured, generous and aromatic, giving it energy and character. This is a very fine Alsace Pinot Noir red wine.
Best consumed now or laid down for 8 years, serve at 16° with white meat: veal tenderloin, roast pork shanks, roast poultry. Sea or freshwater fish: grilled or baked, guinea fowl, ham and cold cuts. Haunch of lamb, beef casserole, roast chicken.
