Riesling 2010

France » Alsace » Hugel et Fils » Riesling 2010

Summary

Terroir: The grapes used to produce Hugels "Classic" wines come exclusively from estate owned vineyards or from growers under long term contract surrounding the village of Riquewihr.

Vinification: Fermentation takes place in temperature controlled vats followed by natural clarification in nuetral vessels over the winter. The wine is lightly fined and gently filtered prior to bottling in the spring.

Vintage Notes

""Predominantly green hints reveal its youth. This dry, elegant, fresh young wine is lively, frank and refreshingly quaffable, ideal for all those who appreciate classic Riesling.

All this and more : it has an agreeable fruit character of green apple, white peach, citrus, grapefruit and spring blossom.

Enjoy it as an aperitif or to start a meal, with oysters, seafood, smoked fish, eel, pike or perch, and goats’ cheese." -Etienne Hugel

Varietal: Riesling: 100%

    "Almost sweet but definitely electrifying; maybe the most gulpable Hugel in several years."

    "Pale straw-green. Precise, perfumed aromas of white flowers, lime, chamomile, crystallized ginger and tequila. Then pure, refined and balanced, with sneaky concentration and lovely purity to the white stone, lemon and ginger flavors. Ripe mineral-driven acidity really extends the finish. This clocks in at 7.5 g/l total acidity (vs. 7.2 g/l in the 2011), but the must had 11 g/l and so the Hugels chose to do a partial malolactic fermentation. Offhand, I can't remember a better base riesling from Hugel, ever. Very well done! "

    "Crisp and juicy, with hints of lychee and green melon mixing with flavors of green and yellow apple, smoke and pink grapefruit, followed by a moderate, citrus-tinged finish."

    "Apples and a little minty spice greet the nose along with a slightly spicy vegetal note that recalls fennel. Very smooth in the mouth with good body and dry extract. You can feel this in the mouth though the acidity is well covered, leaving a wine with moderate richness but very little weight. The flavors are lightly orchard fruity with a hint of strawberry and lightly floral notes that yield to sour apple and a little under-ripe pineapple on the finale. I could drink this all day. Not the most complex but lovely freshness and balance."
