The aromas are open and generous, just like those of a Riesling at the height of age, dashing with a sound footing that reveals an aristocratic origin. This wine comes from the finest marl soils of the Riquewihr, giving it a unique saline and full-bodied attack on the palate: you know what you are getting right from the start. The elegant, profound, complex and well-balanced flavour is perfectly structured over time by its beautifully mature acidity from which there is no sweetness to distract. This is a dry white wine.

A selection "parcellaire" of carefully chosen plots of the Famille Hugel estate situated in Riquewihr in its most prestigious crus. Most of the plots chosen for this new wine are being converted into Organic viticulture. The unique marl soils of Riquewihr, in and around the Schoenenbourg give a characteristic minerality to wines from this remarkable terroir. A wine of depth and of patience.

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.
