Hugel et Fils Riesling Alsace Aoc Tradition 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Attractively bright pale yellow green in colour. A fragrant clean lively refreshing wine whose spring-like freshness of fruit and floral aromas makes it eminently quaffable.

Alsace : a climate blessed by the gods Thanks to its privileged geographical situation, Alsace is the driest wine region in France. Its micro-climate is caused by the distance which separates it from maritime influences, and by the protection of the Vosges mountains. This climate enables the grapes to ripen slowly to full maturity, giving the wine great finesse of aroma and unequalled intensity. A mosaic of soils Because of its complex geology, Alsace has an infinite multitude of combined soil types. Centuries of experience have taught the winegrowers how best to match each vine variety to each type of soil. Riquewihr : the most noble wines of all the country From the Middle Ages, Riquewihr was renowned for "the most noble wines of all the country". The Hugel family’s vineyard estates cover more than 25 hectares, exclusively in Riquewihr, and almost half of which are in the Grand Cru zone. No use of fertiliser, low yields, vines averaging thirty years of age, thinning out of excess bunches, and picking always by hand, are all factors which contribute to rigorously high levels of quality. The finest vineyards of the region In addition to its own estates, the Hugel family purchases grapes and grapes alone, from growers under long-term contract, farming more than 100 hectares. Thanks to the skill of their growers, a dozen of the best villages of Alsace thereby contribute to the quality of "Hugel" wines. Their grapes are also always picked by hand, and according to a pre-arranged timetable. Read less

This is dry, with earth and mineral aromas followed by quince and apricot flavors. It lacks a little zip, but the flavors linger on and on. Drink now through 2007.

A quaffable white, with lip-smacking acidity and flavors of lemon peel, apricot and white pepper. Clean, briny finish. Drink now through 2012.

Attractively bright, pale yellow green in colour. A fragrant, clean, lively, refreshing wine, whose spring-like freshness of fruit and floral aromas makes it eminently quaffable.

Pale, bright color. Reticent, pure nose hints at citrus peel and mint. Quite tight in the mouth, with strong acidity keeping the grapefruit and stone flavors in check today. But this juicy wine finishes with plenty of verve and length. I wouldnandrsquo;t broach this until at least the summer of 2009. This has 7.8 grams of acidity after about 20% of the wine went through malolactic fermentation.
