Hugel Gentil 2019

Alsace, FranceIt's been a decade since we last tasted this Hugel classic, labelled Gentil, a wine reviving an ancient Alsace tradition of blending noble grape varieties. In this case, Hugel pairs the sophisticated, spicy flavour of gewürztraminer; the body of pinot gris; the finesse of riesling; the grapiness of muscat; and the refreshing character of pinot blanc and sylvaner. In 2019, a solid vintage, it yields a fresh, medium-bodied aromatic wine with plenty of pears, apples, and floral ginger that spill onto the palate, mixing with peaches and spice and a subtle oily texture. So fresh and clean, it is ready to drink, and would be a good match with a classic holiday roast turkey.Tasted: 20 October 2022Tasted by: Anthony GismondiPrices:
