In this beautiful corner of France, next door to Germany, the Gisselbrecht family have crafted wines for more than three centuries. No wonder this deliciously seductive, big on bouquet Gewurz is so moreish. An exceptional, spiced, elegant white.
"Gisselbrecht family's 2017 is a cracker! A floral rose, violet and crystallised ginger gem"
As soon as you open the bottle, you’ll release those unmistakeable aromas of classic Alsatian Gewurztraminer – rose petal, lychee and honeysuckle. They were captured by the deft winemaking skills of Philippe Gisselbrecht, whose family has been crafting wines in Alsace for centuries. The Pierre Brecht range is an offshoot of the family cellar, established by Philippe and his brother Claude. They wanted to produce small batches of quality wines crafted from the finest fruit, using a combination of traditional techniques and up to the minute equipment. A long, slow, chilled fermentation extracts maximum fruit character and makes this Gewurz crisper than other examples. As such, this is a wine you can enjoy on its own, or with Thai cuisine.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
