This is a fairly sweet white that shows how good Alsatian wines can be—it's rich, oily, and fatty in the best senses of those words. The apricot intensity and long finish can improve in your cellar for a few years. An anchor of Alsace since 1639, Hugel is also one of the most widely distributed of the region's producers; look for its Riesling, too.

A Pinot Gris wine from Alsace in France. 2005 Hugel Pinot Gris 'Hugel' Tradition 750ml
The 2005 Pinot Gris Tradition - just now being released - smells of ripe peach, grapefruit, and brown spices. An oily texture and imposing richness in the mouth are nicely balanced by hints of juicy citrus and the finish is refined and poised, with ... Robert Parker. A Pinot Gris wine from Alsace in France. 2005 Hugel Pinot Gris 'Hugel' Tradition 750ml
The colour is youthful but deep, with a quite syrupy, luscious appearance. The bouquet, intensely aromatic, is rich and superbly mature, a festival of honey, acacia blossom, molene, liquorice stick, apricot and yellow peach. Opulent, velvety, ripe, well-built and full-bodied, it embalms the palate. Distinguished and with definite character, this is a highly gastronomic wine that will age well. It will be perfect in from 2 to 5 years but can be kept for 15 to 20 years. Serve it between 8 and 10C with complex, richly flavoured dishes, foie gras, pan-fried goose liver, lobster, crayfish, crab, sea bass, roast chicken, pheasant with cabbage, rack of milk-fed veal, braised truffles. 2 August 2007
