Famille Hugel Riesling 2016

4,69000

Grape : Riesling : 100%

A very fresh yellow, pale green with dominant hints of green with lighter hints of the pale yellow of lime trees in
spring, some silver, crystalline highlights, a pleasant energetic sheen, full and lively legs.
The aroma is still a bit restrained and serious but with the fresh, clear, precise and well stated fruitiness of lime,
fresh kiwi, lemongrass, gooseberry, fresh moss and a lightly mineral flinty nuance.
On the palate this is a dry, refreshing and lively wine with a pleasant sense of tension and vivacity which enlivens
the palate, it’s rounded and full flavour amply quenches the thirst.
Ideal served now as an aperitif for those who appreciate the vivacity and tension of a truly classic Riesling, or
served with seafood, fresh shellfish, fish Carpaccio, king prawns, cold cuts or a quiche Lorraine. Smoked fish, eel,
bacon, smoked or dried ham.
Perfect for laying down for 1 to 4 years.
Best served at 8°C. After a few years it could be served with turbot, sea bass, monk-fish, lobster, king prawns,
seafood, sander, pike, salmon, scallops, marinated or raw fish Carpaccio, goat’s cheese.
