2018 Hugel Riesling Classic 150CL
The Hugel Riesling is an intense pale green color, dominated with the green and pale yellow highlights of springtime tree foliage, all completed with a silvery sheen. The bouquet is still a bit discreet and fresh: it is harmonious, clear and well-stated, yet quite dense and fruity with hints of lime, fresh kiwi, lemon-grass, 'Mirabelle' (plum), greengage and a slightly mineral edge. This is a dry wine that is also fresh and lovingly thirst-quenching on the palate.
"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.
