K&L Notes

According to Hugel: "This wine 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."
