Hugel Classic Pinot Gris 2016
Rich and full but still dry. Nose: The most discreet of all varieties in primary aromas, it enjoys the best aging potential. The bouquet is soft and supple, intense, characteristically open and expressive, with fully ripe fruit notes, apricot, greengage, licorice, a touch of buttery brioche, sesame seed, pistachio and fresh hazelnut. Palate: The wine fills the mouth and is well constructed, suave, velvety, soft and almost juicy, with a nice long aromatic finish.
Lithe and juicy, this well-balanced Pinot Gris is backed by sleek acidity that focuses the flavors of melon, pickled ginger, star fruit and mineral. Clean-cut finish. Drink now through 2023. 2,500 cases made, 1,500 cases imported.
