90 Pts Wine Spectator
"Bright and mineral-driven, this snappy Riesling is well-knit, with a subtle mesh of crunchy pear, star fruit, beeswax and lemon zest flavors. Offers a clean, lingering finish. Drink now through 2022. 1,900 cases made." Reviewed February 2014
"The noblest white wine of them all, Riesling is dry and aristocratic. Our climate and soil enable this variety to achieve its fullest potential.
Elegant and distinguished, it partners all the gastronomic specialities of Alsace, as well as seafood and grilled or poached fish." - Winery Tasting Notes
12 days of bitter cold in February (-18Â°C), budburst early April, flowering spread over 3 weeks.
Damp early summer but superb August. Harvest began on 24 September. Superb grapes.
Patchy weather during part of the harvest then fine sunny intervals.
Fine well-balanced classic wines, similar to 2011 but richer and with more depth, yet already accessible.
Hugel did not make any SGN in 2012.
In the vineyard
Made exclusively from hand harvested grapes from predominantly clay and limestone vineyards, in a dozen of the most favored localities in and around Riquewihr. A cool and long growing season give this unique dry wine great finesse and unequalled intensity.
The grapes are taken in small tubs to the presses, which are filled by gravity, without any pumping or other mechanical intervention.
After pressing, the must is decanted for a few hours, then fermented in temperature-controlled barrels or vats (at 18 to 24Â°C). The wine is racked just once, before natural clarification during the course of the winter. The following spring, the wine is lightly filtered just before bottling, and the bottles are then aged in our cellars until released for sale.
The whole production of this wine is closed with DIAM the cork without the risk of cork taint.
