Hugel Pinot Blanc 'Cuvee les Amours' 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Gentil shows pure, fresh aromas, very fruit-driven and floral, as well as expressive and flattering. On the palate, this dry wine has a lively, youthful fresh character that is refreshing, with a pleasant, scented finish. Gentil is a perfect wine to sip with friends or to enjoy with simple everyday meals. Gentil is best enjoyed chilled with saltwater and freshwater fish, shellfish, starters and hors d'oeuvres.

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

I had really forgotten how much I love Alsatian wine. This one brought back the love. Full of creamy raisin fruit flavors with lime zest solid from nose to swallow, richly dimensional with a crisp structured finish.

    Floral aromas of lavender and verbena accent this wine’s pear and citrus flavors, hinting at a steely minerality underneath.

    This light-bodied white is clean and minerally, displaying hints of stone, lemon zest and white peach. A racy wine, with a mouthwatering finish. Gewürztraminer, Riesling, Pinot Gris, Muscat and Sylvaner. Drink now through 2012.

    A dry blended wine, with attractive rich white fruits, pears and a citrus streak. The wine has a smooth texture, perfumed by lychee and with bright acidity to finish.
