Hugel Gentil 2017 (Alsace) (ID# 200)

Name Hugel Gentil 2017 (ID# 200)
Varietal White Blend
Region Alsace
Notes "Delicious aromas and flavors of apple, nectarine, chamomile and gentle spices. Fruity, juicy and refined; harmonious acidity lifts the stone fruit and mineral nuances. A very complex blend of 40% Sylvaner, plus mostly Pinot Blanc Auxerrois, Riesling, and Pinot Gris, and a little Gewürztraminer, Muscat Ottonel and Muscat d’Alsace." (Ian D'Agata, Vinous)

Additional Notes

"Fresh and floral, this light-bodied white shows a subtle streak of fresh earth underscoring flavors of orange sorbet, verbena, chalk and melon. Gewürztraminer, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner. Drink now. 25,000 cases made, 6,000 cases imported." (Wine Spectator) "A subtle nose presents hints of lemon while the palate is fresh and light. This wine is taut, bright and almost bouncy with lemon zestiness. It's easy but very refreshing." (Wine Enthusiast)
