Hugel Classic Pinot Gris 2020
Hugel Classic Pinot Gris
Region: Alsace, France
Bottle size: 75cl
Grape: Pinot Gris
Originally from northern Italy, this is the emblematic grape of our region due to its slow maturation with cool nights giving its full varietal expression. Dry but intensely aromatic.
Harvested exclusively by hand from clay and limestone vineyards in a dozen of the most favoured localities in and around Riquewihr with a high percentage of estate grapes.
Famille Hugel owns an estate of 30 hectares of prime sites around the historic and picturesque town of Riquewihr in the heart of Alsace, where vineyards have been cultivated for more than 2,000 years, bringing wealth and prosperity to the region’s inhabitants. More than half of these vineyards are classified as Grand Cru: the Schoenenbourg, known for its Riesling, and the Sporen for its Gewurztraminer. All grapes are, and always have been, picked by hand. The Hugel estates are exclusively planted with the noble Alsace grape varieties and the vines have an average age of 35 years.
