There is nowhere else on the planet that produces amazing aromatic white styles quite like Alsace in France. We’re talking Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewürztraminer and Pinot Blanc.
Famille Hugel have been making wine in this world famous corner of the wine world since 1639 and with 12 consecutive family generations at the helm they’ve knocked out a few vintages in their time.
This is their Classic Pinot Gris and it sure as hell is a classic. This is Hugel’s signature Pinot Gris and it’s right on point with style of Gris that Alsace is so well known for. A rich, weighty style but finishes dry.
Scoring 91/100 with wine critic James Suckling who said “Lots of sliced-pear, rose-hip and exotic-fruit aromas give this ripe and generous dry pinot gris a lot of appeal. But it’s the striking cleanness and liveliness at the finish for the super ripe vintage that makes it stand out.”
