Very fresh, bright young colour, pale pistachio green, slightly yellow and quite unctuous. Frank aromatic expression, delicately perfumed, of flowers (rose, jasmine), fruit (apricot, golden delicious apple) and spice (cardamom, saffron), with a lively and spring-like freshness. Refreshingly dry and full of charm on the palate, finishing on an agreeably fruity and perfumed note, both soft and suave. Such purity of expression and fine structure are exactly what is expected of a top-class blended wine like Gentil, with its typically original Alsace character. Gewurztraminer : 14%, Muscat : 2%, Pinot gris : 23%, Riesling : 20%, Sylvaner & Pinot Blanc : 41% 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.Our only wine that is a blend of several varieties. The perfect introduction to Alsace wines. A wine that is almost universal as it is suited to great number of occasions. Perfect Pairings An excellent aperitif with amuses bouches and tapas, or with fish : fresh, marinated, grilled, sushi, tempura, also with lightly spiced food : Indonesian, Indian or Mexican.
