2009 Hugel Pinot Blanc Cuvee les Amours Alsace 12% $15 A touch of woodsy-ness greets the nose, followed by mineral and white pepper-inflected white pear fruit topped with a gentle floral tone. A bit of a fruit bomb, in a good way. This packs in vibrant acidity and a modest degree of richness while delivering intense flavors of fresh apple and apricot fruit, with soft melon accents. The finish is rather long and adds in great mineral cut and a gently plummy floral nuance in the mouth. This is really quite impressive and delicious. 90 points

Review from original list creator: "Slightly earthy and dusty on the nose with attractively nuanced heirloom apple and sweet apple pie aromas. This packs in a lot of power and great intensity on the palate with bright and vivid green apple and spiced fruit flavors that benefit from the slight edge of RS here. All apple skins and faint green herbs akin to spearmint on the backend, this finishes on the short side but cleanly and with a refreshing hint of minerality. 87pts" by 89065Gregory Dal Piaz
