2017 Hugel "Classic" Riesling Alsace

SKU #1453534 92 points Decanter

Outer quote mark An absolutely classic Riesling character here with lime zest on the nose and vibrant acidity counterbalancing the ripe citrus fruit flavours on the palate. There is a touch of spice which adds more complexity to the slate-driven finish. Still very youthful, this has good ageing potential. Drinking Window 2021 - 2028. (AH) Inner quote mark (2/2020)

92 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Dried daffodils, poached pears and green apples with just a touch of white pepper. There’s some real density for a white at this price point, and this is bright and citrusy at the same time. Medium-bodied and quite textured on the finish. Drink now. Inner quote mark (7/2019)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark A hint of spring blossom precedes clean citrus notes on the nose of this refreshing wine. The palate is light but concentrated, fruity but dry and caressed by lemon brightness. The finish is dry and mouthwatering. (AK) Inner quote mark (8/2019)

90 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Straw-green. Lovely green apple, mint, and nectarine aromas. Very precise and suave, featuring juicy orchard fruit and minty herb flavors. Finishes classically dry, long and floral. Made with roughly 50% bought grapes, but as production levels were low in 2017, there’s only about 100,000-110,000 bottles available this year instead of the customary 120,000. Really lovely entry-level Riesling. (ID) Inner quote mark (1/2019)
