    Winemaker's Notes:

    The first release of his knock out wine Pinot Gris in the "classic" range from Hugel was 2006. Rich yet bone dry, the wine could easily be confused with an Alsace Grand Cru. This wine is savory and creamy on the palate and yet has generous acidity to balance its fullness. Pinot Gris has been called the most food friendly of all Alsace varietals by some members of the Hugel family.

    The color is pale pistachio green with straw yellow hints, young, bright and lively. It has a nice, fresh bouquet, non-aggressive, very floral jasmine, hawthorn, lime blossom and frangipane ? with smoky, woodland hints ? moss, fern, chanterelle and cep mushrooms. On the palate it is dry in character, with just enough acidity, a nice structure and balance, still a little closed on the finish but it will open out and become more expressive in the next 6 to 12 months, although its youthful fragrance is already pleasantly refreshing. Enjoy in 2 to 6 years with sea or river fish, eel, red mullet, crayfish, and white meat like veal and poultry. The vinification is perfect, not easy to achieve in a difficult vintage like 2006.
