Hugel Gentil Alsace White
Hugel is one of the classic producers of “Gentil,” a dry white in the ancient Alsace tradition. The name is reserved for AOC Alsace wines fulfilling the superior-quality blending standards. This blending must have at least 50% of Riesling, Muscat, Pinot Gris and/or Gewurztraminer, and the rest can be either Sylvaner, Chasselas and/or Pinot Blanc. Before blending, each variety must be vinified separately and must officially qualify as an AOC Alsace wine. Hugel’s brings together the spicy flavor of Gewurztraminer, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the grapiness of Muscat, finishing with the refreshing character of Sylvaner.
