2018 Hugel Gentil 150CL
Fresh, ripe apple, lemon and pear are on full display on the open nose.
This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines assembled from noble grape varieties were called "Gentil". Gentil "Hugel" allies the suave, spicy flavour of Gewurztraminer, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the grapiness of Muscat and the refreshing character of Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner.
"The wine is already in the grape". As soon as they arrive at the "Hugel" premises in the heart of Riquewihr, the grapes are classified according to precise and strict criteria of quality.
Despite its modest size, the Hugel company enjoys a worldwide reputation. Present in practically every great restaurant in France, almost 80% of "Hugel" wines are exported, to more than 100 countries. The Hugel family was elected by its peers to membership of the "PRIMUM FAMILIAE VINI", an association of 12 family wine companies in the major wine-producing regions of the world. It is also a member of the Henokiens, an international association of family businesses that are all more than two hundred years old.
