A stunning wine that showcases the best of this iconic Alsatian grape variety. The nose is immediately captivating, with intense aromas of lychee, rose petals, and a hint of spice that sets the stage for the complex flavors to come.more reviews

"Warm peach aromas with a spirit note are married with Damask rose on the nose. The palate offers sweet fruity peach flavours, with mandarin and ripe mirabelle plum. These full flavours are balanced by a fruity freshness and full body. A generous, yet clean and medium sweet wine.” Anne Krebiehl, MW
The parcel is located on the northern side of the hill, facing east on a gentle slope offering a beautiful combination of ferruginous granite elements and clays that avoid the vines drying out in summer drought. The parcel was planted in 2009 and now well established it provides a beautiful expression of the terroir and was ready to claim its title of Grand Cru in 2017 for the first time. Harvested on 4 October with small healthy grapes that are rich and concentrated. This vintage is destined to reveal a charming and generous Gewurztraminer. This has translated into a silky creaminess on the palate and a lovely density of spiced and floral aromas.

This is a proper job. Rich and heady with an almost Spatlese-like level of sweetness. The matching oily palate weight and well defined aromatics make this a treat for those who love the variety.

Although not a fan of sweet wine; still, a very interesting wine, with a fruity (lychee) bouquet that fully corresponds to the tasting; complex and long-lasting, but better as an aperitif and well-chilled(!).

The Gewürztraminer Grand Cru Prælatenberg 2018 by Domaine Allimant-Laugner is a true masterpiece. Its rich and complex flavours are a testament to the craftsmanship of the winemakers. This wine offers a delightful experience for those who appreciate the finer nuances of Gewurztraminer.

Amazing wine for the price! The wine is so aromatic, as you want from a gewurztraminer, quite nice acidy to balance out the sweetness, amazing wine to have at the end of a meal.

Very nice expression of Gewurztraminer. This Grand Cru Praelatenberg 2018 will be the ideal partner for foie gras and marbled cheeses. The volume is present, the freshness of the fruit is pleasant. A good wine that can be forgotten for a few years in the cellar.

I was looking for a nice Gewurztraminer... for an evening's rich foie gras... I was not disappointed. It is a sweet with magnificent citrus flavours... I highly recommend it.

Superb 2018 vintage, drunk in 2022, not too much sugar, flavours that arrive in scale with a fine final bouquet, without heaviness. Bravo good pick for this Gewurztraminer.

A real success! We all loved this Gewurztraminer at the table, well made, strongly fruity on the nose, while being rather balanced on the palate, without overdoing it. I recommend it and I'll order it again.

Maybe I like too much excess with Gewürztraminer and this is not the case. Very gastronomic, with quality but lacking in depth. A little dry, far from the style I love about this variety, which expresses its nuances better with more maturity.

A great Gewurztraminer, full and enveloping. Rich in the mouth, diffuses peach, rose and grass, great nose of white flowers. Excellent length. Celebrated with Shropshire Blue and Bleu d'Auvergne, a fantastic pairing.

Structured, typical rosé character, lychee, spice, nice fatness on the palate. The only negative is the residual sugar which is a bit tiring. It is not as integrated as it should be.

Very pleasant wine, slightly sweet.
Good as an aperitif.
We drank it well chilled with Asian dishes: peach and yellow fruit aromas.
To be drunk now.

For my part, I found it too sweet, but it was well appreciated by lovers of sweet whites. To be preferred as an aperitif but also with cheese.

The GEWURZTRAMINER GRAND CRU PRAELATENBERG 2018 - DOMAINE ALLIMANT-LAUGNER is a great wine in which all the typical features of the Alsatian terroir are summed up. Intense and rounded I recommend it as an aperitif to better appreciate its many aromas

Grand cru Gewurztraminer with style. Good and fruity. Good as an aperitif. In small doses, as the sugar content is high. Which contributes, if you like, to the interest of this type of wine. Don't drink too much. Just for indulgence.

Plain and simple: the best Gewürztraminer I have ever drunk: Great fruit despite ripeness, harmony; Gewürztraminer can be like that. And it is worth every euro it costs more than the standard version. I will order more right away with my next order.

A superb wine! This grand cru opens with bewitching aromas of fruit and flowers, and is suave on the palate. A must for lovers of (more or less) sweet wines.

A very tasty Gewurtz, with good length, great for those who like sweet wines as an aperitif, with foie gras, or with strong cheeses. A fine discovery.

Very aromatic, it is characterised by an intense and rich aroma, with notes of exotic fruits, spices, mango, pineapple, lychee. On the palate, it is characterised by a smooth but decisive taste.

It dazzles with its exquisite varietal expression. Its intense aromas of lychees and roses capture the distinctive essence of Gewürztraminer, while on the palate, its lush flavours of tropical fruits and spices envelop the palate with elegance.

A cleanly pressed Traminer with a beautiful nose. We drank it as a soloist. But it also goes well with cheese, nuts and dessert. Exceptionally good!!!

An excellent Grand Cru from a very specific grape variety such as Gewurztraminer. This wine went beautifully with a Basque cheesecake dessert, having the acidity needed to cleanse the palate. Recommended.

This Gewurztraminer Grand Cru is a captivating white wine with floral and fruity aromas, a rich texture and an elegant finish. Ideal with spicy dishes or mature cheeses.
