Hugel Classic Pinot Gris 2012


SKU 17661


"Classic" Pinot Gris is one of the Hugel family secrets first released with the fabulous 2006 vintage. This new release is from a drastic 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. The hand picked grapes were taken intact to the presses, filled by gravity, the must decanted for a few hours, then fermented in temperature-controlled vats with natural yeasts. The wine is the purest expression of the grapes, with a very natural and non-intervention vinification.

Wine EnthusiastThe wine is rich with touches of spice and open, generous apple and pear flavors. It's a warm wine, ripe and ready to drink.
