A fantastic vintage for this wine, ripe creamy but totally dry and sooooo food friendly with white meat dishes, pasta and mushroom based dishes such as rizotto. A wine that will still improve for years, building up its length and complexity for easily another 5 years. A wine not to miss, rated 91 points in Robert Parker's Wine Advocate and an absolute bargain in the US. Look for the cool Ralph Steadman artwork on the label. I would buy this even if I would not have the keys of the Hugel cellars so why would you not ? Trust me, you won't regret. Cheers ! -Etienne Hugel
"Hugels 2007 Pinot Gris smells of smoked meat and sauteed mushrooms, ripe peach and pungent herbs. It displays a striking combination of creaminess and clarity, in part no doubt attributable to a frequent Hugel procedure of letting some lots undergo malo-lactic transformation and others not. Toasted hazelnut, diverse herbs, mushrooms, and subtle suggestions of bitter-sweet liquid floral perfume inform a juicy subtly saline finish. This is going to make a terrific table wine over the next 8-10 years."
