In 1639 the Hugel family settled in the picturesque little town of Riquewihr in Alsace, where they have remained ever since. Today Famille Hugel retains the character of a true family wine business and is currently managed by the 12th and 13th generations of the family.
A new selection “parcellaire” of carefully chosen plots of the Famille Hugel estate situated in Riquewihr in its most prestigious crus. Most of the plots chosen for this new wine are being converted into organic viticulture. The unique clay soils of Riquewihr, in and around the Sporen give a characteristic density to wines from this remarkable terroir. A wine of depth and of patience.
The spice of Alsace and one of Famille Hugel’s signature wines. It is both wonderfully aromatic and extroverted through its floral and spicy notes, with hints of fresh roses, freesia, lily, passion fruit, lychee, mango, cardamom and orange blossom.
Food matches: To accompany a variety of spicy Asian dishes as well as smoked salmon and strong cheeses.
