- Other Info:
- Made exclusively from hand harvested grapes from predominantly clay and limestone vineyards, in a dozen of the most favoured localities in and around Riquewihr. A cool and long growing season give this unique dry wine great finesse and unequalled intensity.
Hints of lime and petrol on the nose followed by a complex steely palate showing excellent fresh fruit and stony minerality. From one of Alsace's very top producers.
- 'For a real blockbuster riesling and something slightly more suited to cooler weather and the belt-bursting Alsatian cuisine of sausages, bacon and other pork cuts and choucroute - aka sauerkraut in Germany, variations of which appear on almost every restaurant menu - try the Hugel Estate Riesling from one of the biggest names in the area - less aromatic than the others, this has real depth and mouth-filling body, with pear and pie crust flavours and a long finish. And if you are not into choucroute, try this with a grilled prime fish, like a whole sea bass or John Dory.' - Terry Kirby, The Independent
'[Alsace] is also one of the world's great centres for riesling, which it makes in a style marked by the variety's typical quivering steeliness and minerals but, as in Hugel's textbook example, boosted with orchard fruit succulence, blossom and spice.' - David Williams, The Observer
