Hugel et Fils Riesling Alsace Aoc Jubilee 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

Youthfully lively but intense in colour, with reflections that vary from light green to yellow to straw gold, its structure is bright and crystal clear. The bouquet is full, harmonious and nicely balanced, with a subtle touch of freshness that reveals its youth yet displays exceptional fruit and floral characteristics : white peach, gooseberry, green fig, a touch of muscatel, with verbena, lime-blossom and hop. It has sufficient reserve to hint at its ageing potential. Despite being a dry wine, it richly envelopes the palate. It is well structured, distinguished, full of character, with exactly enough acidity to ensure elegant, balanced taste and harmony. Everything incites us to enjoy this wine while it is so enchantingly youthful, yet it is obvious that, with time, it will develop the full palette of aromatic, mineral flavours that enhance all Rieslings from the finest vineyards. Enjoy this wine in 4 to 10 years time with freshwater or seawater fish, grilled, poached or in cream sauce, with langoustine, lobster or crayfish. A supremely gastronomic wine.

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
