Hugel Riesling 2015, Alsace AOC, France 🇫🇷 .
- 90 points by Robert Parker .
You can never go wrong with an Alsace Riesling. Because the region can surprise you with such great dry, crisp, fresh acidic rieslings. Specially an estate like @famillehugeltastingroom who have been growing wines since 1639 in the border region between France and Germany. The first traces of the Hugel family in Alsace goes back to the 15th century. During the 18th and 19th centuries, the family gained an enviable reputation for their wine growing skills and for the meticulous way in which they cultivate their vineyards. .
After 1918 a handful of farsighted and courageous winegrowers, including Frederic Emile Hugel took steps to save the vineyards of Alsace ravaged by years of wars. He devoted his entire life to the promotion of high-quality wines from noble grape varieties. His sons and grandsons have done the same, implementing the principles inherited from the ancestors.
Next time you are looking for a bottle of great Riesling, don’t think twice before picking this one.
