"A hint of spring blossom precedes clean citrus notes on the nose of this refreshing wine. The palate is light but concentrated, fruity but dry and caressed by lemon brightness. The finish is dry and mouthwatering."

90 Ian Dagata - Vinous Media

"Straw-green. Lovely green apple, mint, and nectarine aromas. Very precise and suave, featuring juicy orchard fruit and minty herb flavors. Finishes classically dry, long and floral. Made with roughly 50% bought grapes, but as production levels were low in 2017, there’s only about 100,000-110,000 bottles available this year instead of the customary 120,000. Really lovely entry-level Riesling."

Product Description:

"The Famille Hugel signature wine. This dry Riesling stands out for its finesse and frankness and is the ideal partner to fish and seafood thanks to its wonderful balance and elegance.

It is our most demanding variety as it is also the latest ripening. Dry and elegant, it expresses itself best on our steepest slopes with the most complex minerality." - Importer
