Known today for their passion and modern outlook, the dynamic Hugel family, located in the fortified village of Riquewihr, has earned a worldwide reputation for their Alsace wines. The first wine in the Hugel range is named Gentil. This lovely blended white brings together the elegance of dry Riesling, the richness of Pinot Gris, the spices of Gewurztraminer and Muscat, and the freshness of Pinot Blanc and Sylvaner. Floral, dry and joyous in nature, Gentil is loved worldwide for its tasty flavor, terrific value and versatility in food pairing. Made from handpicked grapes in sustainable vineyards.

Wine EnthusiastA light touch is conveyed by aromas of honeysuckle, while the off-dry palate is balanced by fresh, citric verve. This wine has a dancing, easygoing nature marked by freshness and lightness in equal measure. Asian food flavors suggest themselves for this super-balanced, playful white.
