Ageing; a mix of old barrels and Vat

Food pairing ideas; This loves light spicy dishes

Description; Bright young colour, pale pistachio green, slightly yellow and quite unctuous. Frank aromatic expression, delicately perfumed, of flowers (rose, jasmine), fruit (apricot, golden delicious apple) and spice (cardamom, saffron), with a lively and spring-like freshness. Refreshingly dry and full of charm on the palate, finishing on an agreeably fruity and perfumed note, both soft and suave. Such purity of expression and fine structure are exactly what is expected of a top-class blended wine like Gentil, with its typically original Alsace character.

Producer Profile;The first traces of the Hugel family in Alsace can be traced back to the XVth century.
Some two centuries later, Hans Ulrich Hugel settled in Riquewihr, which had been devastated by the terrible Thirty Years War.
In 1639 he was made a freeman of the city and soon took charge of the very powerful Corporation of Winegrowers.
In 1672 his son built a fine house in the Rue des Cordiers, and over the doorway was carved the family crest which was the origin of the company’s logo still used today.During the XVIIIth and XIXth centuries, the Hugel family gained an enviable reputation for their winegrowing skills and for the meticulous way in which they cultivated their vineyards.
 In 1902, Frédéric Emile Hugel left the old family property and established himself in premises in the centre of Riquewihr which still form the heart of the family business.
