"Fermented dry, the 2011 Pinot Gris Grossi Laüe has a clear, deep, ripe and complex but also fine and concentrated bouquet with lemon flavors. Full-bodied, rich and intense, this is a very concentrated and powerful Pinot with lovely bright flavors."
"The wine is already in the grape". As soon as they arrive at the "Hugel" premises in the heart of Riquewihr, the grapes are classified according to precise and strict criteria of quality.
Despite its modest size, the Hugel company enjoys a worldwide reputation. Present in practically every great restaurant in France, almost 80% of "Hugel" wines are exported, to more than 100 countries. The Hugel family was elected by its peers to membership of the "PRIMUM FAMILIAE VINI", an association of 12 family wine companies in the major wine-producing regions of the world. It is also a member of the Henokiens, an international association of family businesses that are all more than two hundred years old.
These wines made from single berry selection of overripe and shriveled grapes picked one by one and produced in the greatest years only. The action of noble rot (botrytis cinerea) gives them an almost unlimited ability to age. They are part of the elite of the greatest wines in France. An absolute nectar! Great specialty for several generations of the Hugel family, who drafted the law on late harvest. Wine with great power and longevity to taste religiously by itself during a special occasion.
