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 marl soils of Riquewihr, in and around the Schoenenbourg give a characteristic minerality to wines from this remarkable terroir. A wine of depth and of patience.
“90/100. Apple, lemon, mint & fresh herbs on the nose. Then distinctly lemony & very clean in the mouth, offering a firmly acidic quality to its white stone fruit & herb flavors. Deeper, richer & longer than the entry-level Riesling, which is hardly surprising as more than 50% of the grapes are culled from the Schoenenbourg grand cru. Finishes long & resolutely dry.” (Ian D’Agata, Vinous)
