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.

This is the Famille Hugel signature wine. This dry Riesling stands out for its finesse and frankness. Hugel calls Riesling the Pinot Noir of white wines! It is their most demanding variety as it is also the latest ripening. Dry and elegant, it expresses itself best on our steepest slopes with the most complex minerality.

Very vibrant and lemony – from the blossom to the zest! – this sleek entry-level dry riesling is wonderfully refreshing and animating. The fresh herbal notes amplify this effect. The crisp, long finish makes you want to sing and dance! Drink or hold. Rating: 91 Points; James Suckling
