Lovende beoordelingen van Parker over Allimant-Laugner wijnen

De wijnen van Allimant Laugner waarvan Grandcruwijnen. de trotse importeur is hebben van de Wine Advocate (Parker) prachtige beoordelingen gekregen voor de gehele lijn van dit fraaie huis uit de Elzas (Alsace)

De oorsprong van Domaine Allimant-Laugner begint met 2 families die de wijngaarden sinds de 17e eeuw verbouwen, de Laugners in het dorp Dieffenthal en de Allimants in Saint-Hippolyte. In 1816 en na deelname aan alle campagnes van Napoleon, koopt kapitein François-Antoine Allimant meer wijnstokken op de heuvels van Haut-Koenigsbourg en een prachtige boerderij uit 1664 in het dorp Orschwiller, het huidige eigendom van het domein.

De 7 variëteiten uit de Elzas (Alsace) worden geteeld op een totaal van 12 hectare aan wijnstokken, wat neerkomt op 40 afzonderlijke percelen met verschillende oriëntaties, leeftijden en terroirs. Deze percelenverdeling is essentieel om de rassen op de juiste gronden goed tot uiting te laten komen. Ten zuiden van het dorp, tussen Orschwiller en Saint-Hippolyte, zijn de zware klei- en kalksteenbodems bijzonder geschikt voor de Pinots. Ten noorden van het dorp tot aan Châtenois zijn er granieten bodems die het mogelijk maken om meer aromatische Riesling en Gewurztraminer te produceren. Boven Orschwiller worden de graniet- en schist heuvels van de Praelatenberg sinds de 9e eeuw tot wijnstokken verbouwd. Dit terroir maakt de productie van precieze en zeer typische wijnen mogelijk, die van nature geclassificeerd zijn als Grand Cru d'Alsace.

The NV Crémant d'Alsace Brut is a clear, fresh and aromatic, finely reductive assemblage of Pinot Blanc (60%), Riesling (30%) and Pinot Gris (10%) cultivated on granite and limestone. Fresh and fruity on the palate, this is a lively, medium-bodied and textured, even juicy sparkling wine for aperitif but also lighter dishes. The finish is fresh and saline.

The salmon-colored NV Crémant d'Alsace Rosé Brut is a pure limestone Pinot Noir that opens with a very attractive brioche and fruit aroma on the pure yet intense and elegant nose that is reminiscent of red fruits such as strawberries, raspberries and pomegranate. Round and supple on the palate, this is a mouth-filling and charming sparkling wine with 4.1 grams per liter of residual sugar and a clear, well-structured finish. The wine ages sur lattes between 12 and 18 months and drinks well as aperitif but also with certain desserts. 12.4% alcohol. Diam cork stopper. Tasted in February 2023.

From granite soils, the 2021 Riesling opens with a clear, bright, fresh and concentrated bouquet of stewed and dried white seed fruits intermingled with notes of crushed stones. A pretty fascinating nose! Medium to full-bodied, this is an aromatic, lush and juicy, very elegant and finely structured Riesling with fine (grapefruit) bitters. This is a very well balanced and harmonious yet also tensioned dry Riesling that drinks very well today, but it can also be stored for many years. 12.5% stated alcohol. Diam cork. Tasted in February 2023.

From granite soils, the Laugner 2020 Gewurztraminer opens with a clear, fresh, intense and spicy nose with citrus fruit and potted ginger aromas (lemons, grapefruit) as well as salty, peppery and clove notes. Full-bodied and rich on the palate, this is a round, dense and savory Gewurztraminer with ripe pear aromas and a lush, viscous texture. Quite sweet but still elegant and refined, this is a serious menu wine with positive tannic bitters and grip that just needs a few more years to shine. Seed flavors such as fennel and Persian cumin populate the finish. 13.5% stated alcohol. Diam cork. Tasted in February 2023.

From Orschwiller and a vintage with generous ripeness, the dark ruby-colored 2020 Pinot Noir from Nicolas Laugher offers deep, intense and aromatic dark fruit intertwined with floral aromas on the elegant and seductive nose. Silky, round and still with a tiny bit of CO2, this is a mouth-filling, bone-dry and finely tannic Pinot from a viticulture in conversion to organic. The wine has structure, grip, intensity and a certain power and is full-hearted Alsatian. The maceration took only a week, and apparently the wine hadn't been moved or racked more than necessary. It is a spicy and peppery Pinot with dark berry and floral aromas also on the finish. 13.6% alcohol. Diam cork. Tasted in February 2023

The 2019 Riesling Grand Cru Praelatenberg is concentrated and complex on the nose that displays ripe and firm white fruit intermingled with saline notes. On the palate, this is a generous, lush, refined and chalky-textured Praelatenberg Riesling that reveals very fine and saline acidity and a juicy, well balanced and fruity as well as saline finish. 13% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in February 2023.

From vines planted on granite in 2009, the 2018 Gewurztraminer Grand Cru Praelatenberg is the first claimed as grand cru. Picked on October 13, the bright to medium-golden colored wine opens with a clear and intense yet elegant and aromatic bouquet with lychee, clove and lemon aromas on the nose. Full-bodied and round on the palate, this is an elegant, dense, lush and intense, bitter-finishing Gewurz with bitter orange and candied fruit aromas. Think of English bitter orange confiture! Almond cookies are here as well. The finish is rich, intense and elegant, with fine tannins and an elegant structure. It's a very good and promising wine with gorgeous bitters on the long finish. It has 13.5% stated alcohol plus 52 grams per liter of residual sugar. Diam cork. Tasted in February 2023
