Alsace for Thanksgiving

Recommended Riesling and Pinot Gris

 


« Prev Next » 6 of 7
2010 Hugel Gentil 12.5% $12

A classic Alsatian blend: Sylvaner and Pinot Blanc 46%, Pinot Gris 22%, Riesling 18%, Gewurztraminer 12%, Muscat 2%

Smells earthy right out of the bottle, but then gains nice smoke nuances and almost a bit of pipe tobacco, with floral notes and hints of grass and mineral. Just a touch of sweetness here, but this is also bright and juicy with wonderful plum and lemon flavors that are light and easy. The back end shows a touch more stuffing, with some fine tannins offering a light bit of grab and contributing a bit of spice to the gently floral, lightly honied, crisp white fruits on the finish.  87pts
