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

A excellent combination indeed with the full-styled wine showing elements of lychees, ginger and pineapple and an light oily texture. Sublime. http://www.spittoon.biz/alsace_wine_with_food_thoughts.html

Eggs are always tricky to match with a wine but the Hugel Pinot Blanc 2006 had just the right edge of acidity to keep all in check. By itself the wine was less than stellar; with the food an excellent foil.

This is an easy drinking wine, perfect for a hot summer day or with guests who are not 'into' wine. Pours a pale straw color, crystal clear. Moderate amounts of peaches, pears and honeysuckle flavors. Starts off very light with some peaches. In the middle there are some honeysuckle tones and some pears. Finishes just like the middle. This is a light bodied wine with decent acidity for its age. Probably should have been drunk a few years ago. Nothing overly complex, but does the job.

Young and bright, pale pistachio green in colour, languorous 'tears' shimmer down the glass.Its nicely perfumed fruit bouquet of mango, cumquat and citron is overlaid by sophisticated aromas of roses and fresh oriental spices with citrus hints.The same dynamic, vivacious character can be found on the palate. The wine is dry, with a subtle harmony, soft, velvety and elegantly scented, that makes it agreeably easy to enjoy.

Wine Tasting NotesFrank, spontaneous, expressive, wonderfully perfumed with a multitude of floral aromas, rose, freesia, mullein, acacia, frangipani and hawthorn, its bouquet is fragrant, fruity and attractively light. Refreshingly clean and dry on the palate, deceptively easy to enjoy, it has a soft, gentle finish with a nicely integrated structure and opulence.
