Description

Hugel Gewurztraminer 2009 is a very young wine, with a lively color with pale green, straw yellow hints. Nicely bright and very clear, it trickles unctuously down the glass.

Frank, open bouquet, aromatic and perfumed, very floral and vinous, clean and fresh notes of fruit and spice, rose, mignonette, lily of the valley, mango, lychee, pineapple, passion fruit, cardamom, saffron, hop flower.

Dry on the palate, its freshness harmonises well with its generous structure, nicely aromatic and flavoursome on the finish.

A wine to drink at 1, 2 or 3 years of age, served chilled at 8°C as an aperitif, to spend a pleasant moment.

Or enjoy it with lightly spicy dishes, Chinese, Moroccan, Indonesian, lobster, crayfish tails, with strong cheeses like Munster or Maroilles, also with white meats, veal and pork, and game birds, pheasant, partridge.

In the cellars, the oldest of which dates back to 1551, can be seen rows of oak wine casks, over one hundred years old, crafted by the forefathers of the present generation of Hugels now running the company. Near them is the oldest cask in the world still in use: the Sainte Caterine, which has a capacity of 8,800 litres. It was built in 1715, the year in which Louis XIV died.

The company has always maintained its family character and is determined to keep it that way. The vineyards are owned and farmed by individual members of the family whereas the company owns the buildings and machinery.
