I was very eager to finally get to taste the new Gentil de Hugel; this is an excellent blended wine that combines,
with a wonderful harmony, the varied and magnificent grape varieties of the Alsace region. And the result for
this 2017 vintage: an Alsace wine that is both typical and authentic for its region; full of flavour, fruity, straight
and dry, the perfect combination to arouse a thirst for cool, round, refreshing sensations.
The aroma hits the nose with a powerful fruitiness filled with the scent of youthful springtime and a flavour
melts and charms on the taste-buds.
This is an ideal thirst-quencher; serve immediately although, thanks to its perfect and harmonious structure,
there is a potential improvement to be had from laying it down for 3 to 5 years.
An ideal wine for aperitifs, serve at 8°C.
Oysters, shellfish, seafood, raw fish, sushi or marinated, Carpaccio of langoustines, scallops, grilled fish in light
or slightly creamy sauces.
Ideal with lightly spiced oriental, Indian, Moroccan, Mexican dishes.
Or serve with white meat: veal, pork and poultry, partridge, pheasant.

Description

• “The Most Important Producer of Alsace in the Anglo-Saxon World” – Hugh Johnson
• Celebrated a few years ago the 375th Anniversary …of a tradition of wine making…of an iconic family name…and of a way of living… through the troubled history of the region
• This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition of making wine from an assemblage of all the Noble grape varietals. Gentil allies the suave, spicy flavour of Gewurztraminer, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the grapiness of Muscat and the refreshing character of Sylvaner.
• Great to pair with Indian cuisines with its variety and complexity. The combination of these varietals grown in this cool climate work fabulously with the warm cuisines of India.
