The Hugel 2007 Pinot Blanc is scented by apple and orange blossoms, with their fruits following on a subtly creamy yet bright palate, cyanic and chalky inflections adding some counterpoint in the finish. This will be delicious at least through 2011. This is almost fleshy, which is unusual for a Pinot Blanc, with anise and smokes notes and hints of orange peel and lemon sorbet, all held in check by firm acidity. ** SOLD OUT **


Winemaker's Notes:

Classic "Hugel" wines are made exclusively from grapes purchased from winegrowers under long-term contract, in a dozen of the most favoured localities around Riquewihr. This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines assembled from noble grape varieties were called "Gentil". The Pinot Blanc is an attractive pale yellow colour, complemented by bright young green hints. Already quite open and expressive, the bouquet of ripe fruit - golden delicious apple, mirabelle, molene - is soft and harmonious. The wine has a dry and refreshing character, yet it is also soft, supple and velvety. This is a fine example of Alsace Pinot Blanc, a variety often underestimated, yet which at this level of quality represents extraordinary value for money. Enjoy it at 10°C now or within 2 years, but keep a few bottles for 5 or 6 years and you will be agreeably surprised. Serve with sea or river fish, poached, steamed or smoked, or with asparagus, or with poultry and white meat in light, creamy sauce.
