Young, yellow green colour of medium intensity, bright with an intense, aromatic and open bouquet. Very floral and lively, with the flowery scents of lily of the valley, primula, and fruit aromas of peach and apricot, with a small touch of cinnamon. Dry without arrogance, with beautiful liveliness, a tasty wine which fills the mouth, harmonious and well integrated. Very persistent on the finish. Ready to drink now at 8°C but will keep well for 3 to 5 years. To match with fresh fish, marinated, poached or in sauce which can be fairly rich or spicy.
This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines assembled from noble grape varieties were called "Gentil". Gentil "Hugel" allies the suave, spicy flavour of Gewurztraminer, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the grapiness of Muscat and the refreshing character of Sylvaner.
