Hugel et Fils Pinot Gris Alsace Aoc Hugel 2007
"Hugel Tradition" wines are made partly from the best grapes purchased from winegrowers under long-term contract, in a dozen of the most favoured localities in and around Riquewihr. Depending on the vintage, they include an important amount of grapes from the Hugel estate. The colour is very young but nonetheless quite deep, silky and supple in appearance. This Pinot Gris is an attractive pale yellow colour, with nice depth, still young. The expressive, fruit-driven bouquet is already quite open, a fresh and elegant palette of very ripe fruit aromas, apricot, greengage, a hint of honey and liquorice, remarkably well-balanced and tempting. On the palate, the harmony, structure and balance are exemplary. Just dry enough to offset a lively, perky freshness, it is soft and tender yet not heavy, with a long, elegant finish. This is a classic, textbook Alsace Pinot Gris, well-made, authentic, a great success. It is too good not to enjoy already, but it can be aged ; it will be perfect in 4 or 5 years. Serve at 8°C with fish, shellfish, lobster, crayfish, white meat, veal, pork, poultry and game birds.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.

Tasting Notes: The colour is pale pistachio green with straw yellow hints, young, bright and lively. It has a nice, fresh bouquet, non-aggressive, very floral, jasmine, hawthorn, lime blossom and frangipane, with smoky, woodland hints, moss, fern, chanterelle and cep mushrooms. On the palate it is dry in character, with just enough acidity, a nice structure and balance, still a little closed on the finish but it will open out and become more expressive in the next 6 to 12 months, although its youthful fragrance is already pleasantly refreshing. Enjoy in 2 to 6 years with sea or river fish, eel, red mullet, crayfish, and white meat like veal and poultry.
