2014 Hugel "Estate" Gewürztraminer Alsace

SKU #1429566 93 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A dried-orange-peel headiness on the nose reveals some development. This orange-peel notion gains more currency on the concentrated palate where a streak of freshness accommodates the slight lick of residual sweetness with ease and charm. Concentrated, layered and intense, it shows what a little bottle age does to Gewurztraminer. Lovely now, it's sure to develop further. (AN) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

91 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark A slew of candied fruits and Turkish delight on the nose, which doesn't leave you in any doubt about the grape variety. Quite a rich wine, but the unusually bright acidity for the variety keeps it dry and lively. Drink now or in 2019. Inner quote mark (5/2018)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Dark golden yellow. Spicy rich floral aromas of cardamom and tropical fruit nectar. Complex and varietally accurate flavors of grapefruit, pineapple, clove, cardamom and herbal tea. Finishes long and smooth, even oily, in texture. Lovely sugar-acid balance. (ID) 91+ Inner quote mark (3/2017)

Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark A bright, tangy, medium-bodied white, offering an expressive range of kumquat, fresh herb, melon rind and smoky mineral flavors. Spiced finish. Drink now through 2021. (AN) Inner quote mark (12/2018)
