I am always delighted to be able to confirm the Hugel family’s ability and art in making the most of the Pinot Blanc grape. This wine is perfect, authentic, well-stated, precise, aromatically subtle in the way it expresses its Alsace identity with charm and youthful freshness.
The aroma is fruity, elegantly scented and full or spring. On the palate this is a dry wine with a joyful and harmonious attack. It is cool, refreshing, rounded and smooth; it quenches the thirst with a full-flavoured and savoury finish. Its sapidity is impressive. This is a fine Pinot Blanc which will give much pleasure in its youth but will be truly remarkable in 3 to 5 years with a Burgundy feel without barrel ageing. To make the most of its quality it should be enjoyed during its sparkling youth and will also be magnificent if laid down for 3 to 5 years. This is a wine that goes perfectly on any table.
Best served at 8°C; ideal for aperitifs and gastronomic cuisine. Best served with sea and fresh-water fish, preferably grilled, in sauce, smoked, marinated or at the start of a meal, with asparagus, seafood platters, goat or sheep cheese. Chicken in cream sauce, white asparagus, veal blanquette, sushi, fish in sauce, turbot, sole, scallops.
Residual Sugar: 1.3 g/L
It is now the most planted varietal in Alsace. Delicate, subtle and well built, it makes an excellent aperitif because, although nicely rounded, it is also refreshing. It is the most approachable wine of Alsace and also the most consistent year in year out. Not far in style from an unoaked Chardonnay such as a Macon or Chablis. The perfect all-purpose dry white wine, it goes well with country buffets, seafood and white meats.
Hugel & Fils, founded in 1639 in picturesque Riquewihr, Alsace, France, is still 100% family owned and managed by the 12th consecutive generation of the family. Vines have been cultivated in Alsace for more than 2,000 years and have brought great prosperity to the region. The second driest wine region in France, Alsace has a unique climate that enables the grapes to ripen slowly, giving dry, aromatic wines with great finesse and unequalled intensity: a perfect match for most Western and Asian cuisine.
