2019 Classic Riesling, Hugel, Alsace, France
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 favored localities in and around Riquewihr, this wine is dry and elegant, it expresses itself best on the steepest slopes with the most complex minerality.
2016 Pinot Noir, Hugel, Alsace, France
This wine has a pleasant redcurrant and cherry colour with the slightest hints of bronzed ruby which develop over time accompanied by a wonderful shimmer and transparency.
It has an open, smooth, tender and elegantly fruity nose with hints of black cherry, raspberry, crushed wild strawberry, alcoholic fruit jam, tobacco and woodland floor.
On the palate this is a classic, elegant, refined and smooth Pinot Noir wine, the flavour is structured by the tannin which is not too hard, making it easy to approach and thirst-quenching.
