Hugel Classic Riesling 6/75 new pres 2020
12.5% | 750ml
The robe’s sparkling youthfulness give it eye-catching bright green highlights. At first this Riesling’s
aromas are dashing, well-stated and floral, opening with hints of lily of the valley, elderflower and lively
citrus zest. With age it takes on rocky hints of flint, tinder, hydrocarbons. The perfectly dry flavour
detonates with life, energy and a clearly stated attack that remains without greenness and opens up
the appetite. Lemon, lime and yusu zest roll around the mouth right up to the acidic, delicate and
addictive final note.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
The first traces of the Hugel family in Alsace can be traced back to the XVth century .After 1918, a handful of farsighted and courageous winegrowers, including Frédéric Emile Hugel, took steps to save the vineyards of Alsace. His son Jean continued this crusade. By his perseverance and hard work he proved that Alsace wines merited a place among the finest wines in the world.
His three sons, Georges, Jean and André, have strictly followed this same course, and they have obtained official recognition for Alsace late-harvest “Vendange Tardive” and “Sélection de Grains Nobles” wines.
