A hint of smoke and a touch of earth precede the fresh lemon notes of the nose. The dry palate, with its vivid impression of very pure, bright and incisive lemon freshness, still seems tightly wound. There is something brooding and alive about this - it can be felt below the surface, disquieting but promising. This has barely started on its journey and will take a while to develop fully but it’s all already there, dormant and ready to unfurl with a little more bottle age. The pure, long and intense finish is a delicious promise. Drink 2017 - 2037.
A beautiful and clean wine with flowers, honey dew and gun flint. Medium body, bright acidity and flint undertones. Lots of aniseed, clove and burning-spice flavors here, too. So beautiful. Drink now or hold. Lots of potential here.
Entirely sourced in the Schoenenbourg, the 2011 Riesling Grossi Laüe (375 ml) offers a deep, clear, fresh and fine bouquet. Sourced in the best three parcels next to the Schoelhammer, the wine shows a clear and fine, yet warm and rich, bouquet of cooked white fruits along with sweet almond aromas. Rich and intense on the palate, this is a full-bodied, powerful and slightly bitter Riesling with firm, but slightly astringent, tannins. The Hugel family releases their best wines only when they consider they have reached the best maturity. Consumers can rely on the Hugel style that represents pure, dry, straight yet elegant, and food-friendly Alsace classics that reflect the specific grape varieties as well as the specific terroirs, even though Hugel still doesn't mention the vineyard name on the label.
