VINEYARDS & VINIFICATION
A kaleidoscope of grapiness, produced exclusively from hand harvested grapes in predominantly
clay and limestone vineyards, from a dozen of the most favored localities in and around Riquewihr.
A cool and long growing season gives this unique dry wine great finesse and unequalled drinkability.
The grapes are taken in small tubs to the presses, which are filled by gravity, without any pumping
or other mechanical intervention. After pressing, the must is decanted for a few hours, then
fermented in temperature-controlled barrels or vats (at 18 to 24°C). The wine is racked just once,
before natural clarification during the course of the winter. The following spring, the wine is lightly
filtered just before bottling, and the bottles are then aged in our cellars until released for sale.
The whole production of this wine is closed with DIAM the cork without the risk of cork taint.

Tasting notes by Serge Dubs, World’s Best Sommelier 1989
Youthful colour, lively, bright, crystal-clear, fresh pale green with silver hints and elegant silkiness.
Fresh, open bouquet, a frank and expressively aromatic perfume of fruit and flowers, cardamom,
lemon balm, rose, jasmine, freesia, lime and cherry blossom, lychee, pear, cleanly defined and subtly
spicy.
Dry on the palate, the wine is fresh and easy to enjoy, yet pleasantly rich and full of flavour, with an
elegantly aromatic aftertaste. Nicely balanced in the mouth, it has a refreshing character and
generous structure that gives it charm.
A wine to drink now and over the next 3 years, served at 8°C on its own, or with fish (baked, panfried or in cream sauce), red mullet, turbot, pike-perch, lobster, crab and dishes with Oriental and
Indian spices

Descrizione

FAMILLE HUGEL

 

È il 1639 quando Hans Ulrich Hugel si stabilise nella pittoresca cittadina di Riquewihr per accettare, di li a poco, un prestigioso incarico presso la Corporation of Winegrowers: è l’inizio di un legame uomo-territorio che non si interromperà mai.
Dal 1639 ad oggi, senza interruzione di continuità, la famiglia Hugel è produttrice di eccellenza nel mondo e le generazioni che si sono succedute nella storia hanno avuto la capacità di contribuire al successo dell’intera regione come zona vitivinicola d’eccellenza.

 

Oggi guidata dalla tredicesima generazione, l’Azienda Famille Hugel è sempre rimasta a conduzione familiare con l’ambizione, raggiunta, di difendere la propria identità ed indipendenza nel segno della qualità.
Con una produzione di circa 100.000 casse all’anno, ed un fatturato export parti al 90% in oltre 100 paesi, il nome Hugelè diventato sinonimo di “vini d’Alsazia”.
