Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

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

Critical Acclaim

"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."

A very nice wine that goes with a lot of different food, especially during a warm summer. Perfect match with white meat or seafood and pasta. It can even stand up to a red sauce as long as it's not too rich. The wine itself has this remarkable profile of cream balanced with minerality and an earthy-woodsy palate.

In the cellars, the oldest of which dates back to 1551, can be seen rows of oak wine casks, over one hundred years old, crafted by the forefathers of the present generation of Hugels now running the company. Near them is the oldest cask in the world still in use: the Sainte Caterine, which has a capacity of 8,800 litres. It was built in 1715, the year in which Louis XIV died. The...
