Hugel Classic Riesling 2016
Wine EnthusiastGlints of very ripe, juicy pear and clementine on the nose turn into aromatic mandarin on the lively, open and absolutely fruit-laden palate that has both the juiciness and tartness of ripe citrus. Despite the light body the fruit fills mouth and mind. The finish is dry, clean, fresh and has a tropical echo.
James SucklingThis is a real charmer in a way the basic Riesling from Hugel never was before. The fruit aromas practically leap out at you, ranging from pineapple to apple, citrus, peach and Mirabelle. Somehow this properly dry Riesling manages to taste full-bodied, fully ripe, yet also charming and refreshing. The acidity is lively, but the finish is silky in a way thats not normal for wines of this category. Just over 50% estate fruit, just under 50% bought in (all from south of Colmar on limestone-clay or similar soils).
