Domaine Allimant-Laugner can trace
its winegrowing history back to 1724.
On its current property, in the center of
Alsace’s densest wine region, Domaine
Allimant-Laugner owns 2.5 acres of
Pinot Noir vines and, more importantly,
28 acres of white wine varieties,
with the emphasis on Riesling,
Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris and Pinot
Blanc. In Alsace, Pinot Blanc is seen
as somewhat of an aperitif, the lessconsequential
sibling of Pinot Gris. But
many estates, including this one, take
it more seriously, fashioning it into a
structured, aromatic wine that can hold
its place at the table.
This wine showcases exuberant,
expressive Alsatian Pinot Blanc at its
best. Aromatics include passionfruit,
guava and mango, inflected with a
heady note of high-toned baking spice.
The tropical fruit intensity continues in
the mouth, where the wine has a succulent,
almost thirst-quenching vitality.
Big and mouthfilling for a white, it has
a long and deeply concentrated finish.
