This is 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.
The Hugel Riesling is an intense pale green colour, dominated with the green and pale-yellow highlights of springtime tree foliage, all completed with a silvery sheen. The bouquet is still a bit discreet and fresh — it is harmonious, clear and well-stated, yet quite dense and fruity with hints of lime, fresh kiwi, lemongrass, ‘Mirabelle’, greengage and a slightly mineral edge. A beautiful mix of racy citrus fruit, elegant floral notes and some crunchy pear fruit. Perfectly poised and precise, this is beginning to show the first signs of bottle.
This is a dry wine that is also fresh and lovingly thirst-quenching on the palate. It is well-balanced with a generous and well-formed structure underlined by the wonderful freshness and vigour which is so typical to this grape variety’s elegant temperament. The grapes are perfectly ripe.
Food matches: Best served with turbot, sea bass, monkfish, lobster, king prawns, seafood, sander, pike, salmon, scallops, marinated or raw fish carpaccio, goat’s cheese.
