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

I honestly don't have many tasting notes because we drank this whole bottle with dinner. Our mouths were on fire the whole time and it went terrific. Some fruit salad on the finish but to be honest, it went so well with spicy shrimp pad see ew that I didn't want the sensation to stop and I couldn't get an empty mouth, clean palate sip.

Versatile and friendly wine. Ripe rockmelon gives way to sweet apples and hints of stonefruit. Nice cleansing acidity, fresh and very pleasant.

The great speciality of our region. Only in Alsace does the aromatic expressiveness of this variety attain such summits.Spicy and suave, it can be enjoyed on its own, but makes a marvellous accompaniment to all rich, spicy dishes, smoked fish, Oriental cuisine...

The corresponding 2007 Gewurztraminer is quite lithe and bright for its variety, with marjoram, white pepper, and rose petal aromas, pungent herbal, tart fruit skin, and smoked meat flavors, and a dry, minty, smoky, slightly oily, saline, and invigoratingly bitter finish. Take either of these vintages out and let them demonstrate their versatility at table anytime over the next 3-4 years.

Bright, pale yellow. Pure, perfumed nose offers yellow fruits, flowers, smoked meat and a hint of banana: this couldnandrsquo;t be anything but gewurztraminer. Then supple, broad and just off-dry, with lovely freshness to its rich yellow fruit and spice flavors. A very good tradition bottling.
