Winemaker Notes

Very attractive straw yellow color, deep, intense and shimmering, crystal clear with green hints and soft, velvety tears that trickle down the glass. The bouquet is agreeably aromatic, fresh, clean and open, with the depth and complexity of perfectly ripe grapes, but not over-ripe, showing fruit and floral tones and a subtle rocky minerality from its noble origin that makes it expressive and elegant, remarkably well balanced and harmonious. Opulent and generous, it fills the mouth perfectly, an agreeable sensation of ripe fruit upheld by a nice fresh acidity, this elegant noble wine has a strong character and personality. A very tasty wine, with a long, complex aromatic finish, it is perfectly integrated and well balanced.

JS 95
James Suckling
A dense and soft riesling with sliced lemon, pear and spice character. Full and intense with wonderful lime, mineral and flint. Rich and flavorful. Open and delicious now.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Clear, fully ripe, bright fruit aromas along with some minty/herbal and mineral/earthy flavors on the nose open the intensely and deeply straw-yellow colored 2009 Riesling Hugel Jubilee. Ripe but very mineral on the palate, with a lower acidity than 2010 yet still vital and elegant, this generously full-bodied, well structured and balanced undercover Schoenenbourg, with its long and aromatic finish, is already lovely to drink but should hold its form over the next decade.
WE 92
Wine Enthusiast
Part of the impressive series of Jubilée wines that are aged before release, this Hugel Riesling is just getting to maturity with its soft aromatic character, touch of toastiness, and refreshing herbal flavors. It's now ready to drink, although it will be even better from 2016. Cellar Selection.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
An elegant Riesling, with a streak of stony minerality and finely honed acidity framing the flavors of macerated peach, lemon meringue, slivered almond and pine forest. Offers a mouthwatering, saline-tinged finish. Drink now through 2024.

Hugel Winery Video

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 company has always maintained its family character and is determined to keep it that way. The vineyards are owned and farmed by individual members of the family whereas the company owns the buildings and machinery.

With its fairytale aesthetic, Germanic influence and strong emphasis on white wines, Alsace is one of France’s most unique viticultural regions. This hotly contested stretch of land running north to south on France’s northeastern border has spent much of its existence as German territory. Nestled in the rain shadow of the Vosges mountains, it is one of the driest regions of France but enjoys a long and cool growing season. Autumn humidity facilitates the development of “noble rot” for the production of late-picked sweet wines, Vendange Tardive and Sélection de Grains Nobles.

The best wines of Alsace can be described as aromatic and honeyed, even when completely dry. The region’s “noble” varieties, the only ones permitted within Alsace’s 51 Grands Crus vineyards, are Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Muscat, and Pinot Gris.

Riesling is Alsace’s main specialty. In its youth, Alsatian Riesling is dry, fresh and floral, but develops complex mineral and flint character with age. Gewurztraminer is known for its signature spice and lychee aromatics, and is often utilized for late harvest wines. Pinot Gris is prized for its combination of crisp acidity and savory spice as well as ripe stone fruit flavors. Muscat, vinified dry, tastes of ripe green grapes and fresh rose petal.

Other varieties grown here include Pinot Blanc, Auxerrois, Chasselas, Sylvaner and Pinot Noir—the only red grape permitted in Alsace and mainly used for sparkling rosé known as Crémant d’Alsace. Most Alsatian wines are single-varietal bottlings and unlike other French regions, are also labeled with the variety name.

Riesling possesses a remarkable ability to reflect the character of wherever it is grown while still maintaining its identity. A regal variety of incredible purity and precision, this versatile grape can be just as enjoyable dry or sweet, young or old, still or sparkling and can age longer than nearly any other white variety. Somm Secret—Given how difficult it is to discern the level of sweetness in a Riesling from the label, here are some clues to find the dry ones. First, look for the world “trocken.” (“Halbtrocken” or “feinherb” mean off-dry.) Also a higher abv usually indicates a drier Riesling.
