From the winemaker: Rich and full but still dry. Pinot Gris can be discreet, but also has the longest aging potential. The bouquet is soft and supple, intense, characteristically open and expressive, with fully ripe fruit notes, apricot, wild plum, licorice, a touch of buttery brioche, sesame seed, pistachio and fresh hazelnut. The wine fills the mouth and is well constructed, suave, velvety, soft and almost juicy, with a nice long aromatic finish.

“Classic” Pinot Gris is selection of the best grapes purchased from winegrowers under long-term contract in a dozen of the most favored localities in and around the village of Riquewihr and includes an sizable amount of grapes declassified from some Grand Cru vineyards of the Hugel estate.

Bottle Size: 750ml

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Flavor

    The wine fills the mouth and is well constructed, suave, velvety, soft and almost juicy, with a nice long aromatic finish.
  • Taste

    Fully ripe fruit notes, apricot, pear, white peach, wild plum, white flowers
  • Palate

    Pistachio, fresh hazelnut, sesame seed

"Although a whiff of pear appears on the nose of this wine, it is on the palate that the full pear fruit shines. Its tartness brings freshness to the concentrated, dry and powerful body. The finish is appetizing and clean." - Anne Kriebehl, Wine Enthusiast, 90 points
