Hugel Estate Riesling
Famille Hugel’s signature wine. This Riesling stands out for its finesse and frankness and is the ideal partner to fish and seafood thanks to its freshness and balance. Made exclusively from hand harvested grapes from predominantly clay and limestone vineyards, in a dozen of the most favoured localities in and around Riquewihr, this wine is dry and elegant, it expresses itself best on the steepest slopes with the most complex.
A new selection “parcellaire” of carefully chosen plots of the Famille Hugel estate situated in Riquewihr in its most prestigious crus. Most of the plots chosen for this new wine are being converted into organic viticulture. The unique marl soils of Riquewihr, in and around the Schoenenbourg give a characteristic minerality to wines from this remarkable terroir. A wine of depth and of patience.
A deliciously aromatic expression of Riesling, with pristine fruitiness and youthful freshness of white peach, lemongrass, lemon-verbena, pistachio.
On the palate this is a nice reflection of the variety – dashing and dry without being too hard, thirst-quenching, flavoursome, energetic and well-structured with a strong personality combined with a crystalline and full-flavoured finale and that perfect touch of minerality.
