One of the most famous names in Alsace, Famille Hugel was founded in 1639 and is still 100% family owned and managed by the 12th consecutive generation today. The family owns 30 hectares in Riquewihr in prime sites, more than half of which are Grand Cru, planted with only the noble grape varieties of Alsace. The winemaking is now under the watchful eye of Marc Hugel. The Hugel family were also the pioneers of late-harvest Alsace wines, drafting a law enshrining their production in 1984.
Beautifully youthful colour, fresh, lively and crystal clear, with pale green and lemon yellow hints. The bouquet is expressively fruit-driven but restrained, with fine, open aromas of white peach, lime-blossom, spring flowers, pistachio and fresh moss. In the mouth, the very agreeable sensation of a dry wine, wonderfully refreshing, that leaves the palate clean, lively and joyful.
Wonderful with a seafood platter.
