A new selection “parcellaire” of carefully chosen plots of the Famille Hugel estate situated in Riquewihr in its most prestigious crus. Most of the plots chosen for this new wine are being converted into Organic viticulture. The unique clay soils of Riquewihr, in and around the Sporen give a characteristic density to wines from this remarkable terroir. A wine of depth and of patience.
“92/100. Explosive aromas of fresh apricot, peach & baking spices. Fat, sweet & deep, with highly concentrated, almost syrupy fruit flavors that are framed & enlivened by ripe acidity. At once superripe & fresh, this wine has the structure & intensity to support its captivating sweetness. Finishes rich & long, with smoky nuances. Lovely Gewürztraminer, a variety that Hugel has always excelled with.” (Ian D’Agata, Vinous)
