Tasting notes by Serge Dubs, World's Best Sommelier 1989 :

Fresh youthful colour, very ripe cherry red, bright and limpidly clear.

A spontaneously fresh, open bouquet of soft red fruit: bilberry, cherry, raspberry and cranberry, just a hint of peony, an expressive, textbook example of young Pinot Noir.

Very agreeable to drink, soft, supple and harmonious, this delicately aromatic and refreshing wine is easy to enjoy, with quite a flavourful finish.

It leaves the palate clean and refreshed.

Enjoy it now or within 2 years, served at 15 to 18°C, with cold meats, charcuterie and ham, or mixed grills, or with grilled, fried or smoked fish,.. also with white meats, roast chicken, lamb or pork.

Pinot Noir HUGEL 2011

AOC Alsace

Made from the famous grape variety of Burgundy, this agreeable red wine presents a distinctive Alsace character. Supple, with intense fruit, it can be drunk with charcuterie, red meat and cheese.

Quick View :
Pinot Noir now represents 8% of the total production of Alsace and with global warming the wines are steadily gaining in density.

The vintage :
Harsh winter of 2011 with 26 days below zero. Early budding on April 7, May warm and dry and flowering 15 days ahead of time. Summer cool, damp and gloomy. Return to idyllic weather two weeks before harvest started on September 12, without any precipitation from beginning to end.
Excellent maturity in a fair size crop with soft acidity.
Wines already charming, easy to approach and early to drink soon after bottling.

In the vineyard :
Harvested in the first days of harvest, exclusively by hand, from clay and limestone vineyards in a dozen of the most favoured localities in and around Riquewihr. A cool and long growing season give this unique dry wine great finesse and balanced intensity.

Winemaking :
The grapes are taken in small tubs to the winery, they are 100% destemmed and macerated for 6 to 7 days. After malo-lactic fermentation, the wine is matured in vats until it is bottled in early summer the following year.
The bottles are then aged in our cellars until released for sale.
The whole production of this wine is closed with DIAM the cork without the risk of cork taint.
