External Reviews for Hugel Pinot Blanc Cuvee les Amours
This Gentil feels appropriately delicate, lemon-pithy in its fruit character and scented with a floral musk that brings witch hazel to mind. The vintage pulls predominantly from pinot blanc and sylvaner (24 percent of each), with gewurztraminer contributing its mild, savory spice — fennel seed and caraway — and riesling its fine, mineral-tinged line of acidity.
