Gentil Hugel revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines assembled from noble grape varieties were called "Gentil". Gentil "Hugel" 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.
Bright, young, fresh, light green, pale yellow to pistachio legs tight and fat.
The aromatic expression is open, dense, fragrant, rose, jasmine, hawthorn, linden, acacia flowers, almond blossom, fruity: apricot, yellow peach, pear, quite spicy, cardamom, licorice. Flattering and harmonious bouquet.
The palate is fleshy, a nice richness and almost opulence without heaviness, all is well balanced soft, tender with a lively acidity on the finish.
Goes well with tapas appetizers, fish, fresh, marinated, grilled, sushi, tempura, spicy Indonesian cuisine or a little Indian, Mexican. Paella, lobster or lobster gratin.
