This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition
that wines assembled from noble grape
varieties were called "Gentil". Gentil "Hugel"
allies the suave, spicy flavour of Gewurztraminer, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the grapiness of Muscat and the refreshing character of Sylvaner.
Very fresh, bright young colour, pale pistachio green, slightly yellow and quite unctuous. Frank aromatic expression, delicately perfumed, of flowers (rose, jasmine), fruit (apricot, golden delicious apple) and spice (cardamom, saffron), with a lively and spring
- like freshness.
Refreshingly dry and full of charm on the palate, finishing on an agreeably fruity and
perfumed note, both soft and suave. Such purity of expression and fine structure are exactly what is expected of a top-class
blended wine like Gentil, with its typically original Alsace character.
Drink it now to enjoy its youthful, fresh character, but it may be kept for 2 to 3 years.
