    Winemaker's Notes:

    Climatic conditions were a carbon-copy of the excellent 2007 vintage.

    Delicate, subtle and well built, it makes an excellent apéritif because, although nicely rounded, it is also refreshing. The perfect all-purpose dry white wine.

    Food Match: sushi, shellfish, fish, Asian cuisine.

    Critical Acclaim:

    The Hugel 2009 Pinot Blanc Les Amours seems to offer a memory of its malic acid by way of tart apple skin, accompanied by apple pit and salt accents that make for a piquant as well as invigorating finish. I find the relative understatement and leanness of this Auxerrois–Pinot Blanc blend quite handsome, accompanied as it is by ample refreshment and some intriguing mineral nuances. Plan on enjoying it over the next couple of years.

    Pale color. Expressive aromas of peach, fresh apricot, smoke and butter, plus a high note of brown spices. Juicy, leanish and quite dry, with a floral element and bright acidity contributing to the impression of cut. No shortage of texture here. Finishes dry and persistent. (The juicy but very tight, lemony 2008 showed strong but slightly spiky acidity.)
