The Famille Hugel's 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. It is their most demanding variety as it is also the latest ripening. Dry and elegant, it expresses itself best on our steepest slopes with the most complex minerality.

“Classic” Riesling 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.

Notes of Scent & Flavor

  • Nose

    The bouquet is still a bit discreet and fresh -- it is harmonious, clear and well-stated
  • Flavor

    Citrus fruits, lemon, mandarin orange zest, hints of lime
  • Palate

    Richer streaks of stone fruit, wild yellow plum, Mirabelle, and mango behind the tangy lime
  • Finish

    Pear, kiwi, lemongrass, vanilla bean aromas, slight mineral edge

"In this wine, a hint of lemon zest on the nose is followed by traces of apple and Mirabelle plum. On the palate, this triple notion of fruit unites into vibrant juiciness and lovely balance on a light, bright body. The finish is refreshing and dry." - Anne Kriebehl, Wine Enthusiast, 90 points

A first-time taste of these wines is a revelation.
