Hugel is one of the longest established Alsace houses as well as being the most famous. The family firm has made wine in Riquewihr since 1639. Hugel acts as a négociant buying grapes from other respected growers as well as having extensive top quality vineyard holdings of some 127 hectares, including the Grands Crus Sporen and Schoenenbourg.
The late Johnny Hugel was one of the most influential winemakers in Alsace, not only championing Alsace at home and abroad, but also helping to formulate important protection laws. It was he who obtained official seal of approval for late-harvest Vendange Tardive and Sélection des Grains Nobles designations. Under the thoughtful management of Johnny’s nephews, Marc and the sadly missed Etienne, who died suddenly and much too young in April 2016, the business remained in safe hands.
Marc is the current winemaker, and in fine tradition the firm continues to make some of the very best examples of Late Harvest wines from Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Muscat available in Alsace today. The Jubilee range of wines was started in 1989 when Hugel celebrated its 350th anniversary. Jubilee wines are made only in very good or great vintages and are synonymous with the highest quality cuvées. They all come from Grand Cru sites (except for the Pinot Noir).
Charlotte Hugel will take us through a range of six top quality wines that really show what this absolutely first-rate producer can do. A fascinating tasting of seriously good, top quality wines from a sadly overlooked area of France.
