2014 Hugel "Classic" Gewürztraminer Alsace

SKU #1335367 90 points Wine Enthusiast

 Hints of rosewater and Turkish Delight waft from the glass. More toned down, the palate shines with citric freshness. There is quite a bit of warmth that seems to intensify the floral peach notes even more. It's very aromatic and varietally true, with a tropical finish of passion fruit.


 Bright yellow. Classic aromas of grapefruit, smoked beef and sweet spices. Vivid, precise and fruity, preserving noteworthy freshness in light of what can best be described as enamel-shattering acidity. Very well balanced on the dry, long finish. A major success for Gewürz in 2014.  (3/2017)

Wine Spectator

 Hints of beeswax and orange blossom herald this dry and balanced Gewürztraminer. A smoky underpinning accents the pink grapefruit granita and white pepper notes. Drink now through 2020. 3,500 cases made.  (2/2017)

Additional Information:



- Thought to have originated in the city of Tramin in Italy's Alto Adige, Gew├╝rztraminer is actually a pink-skinned incarnation of the Traminer varietal, and also the most widely planted variation. Known for its heady perfume redolent of rose petals and spice and tropical lychee flavor, its fuller body and moderate acidity, it can be made in a variety of styles ranging from completely dry to sweet late harvest wines. The best representations of the grape are grown in Austria and France's Alsace, though it's being made in smaller quantities in Eastern Europe, Italy, the Pacific Northwest, California, New Zealand and Australia.


- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

- A region and appellation in France that has been a part of both France and Germany throughout history. Geologically isolated from both countries, Alsace has also maintained much of its own culture and wine tradition, while also being influenced by the traditions of both countries. Alsatian wine is easily recognized by it traditional tall bottles. Alsatian wine makers produce a unique style of varietal wine, 90 percent of which is white.
