Hugel, Riesling Jubilee
Colour: Visually, the wine is bright with serious depth and intensity. Predominant pale green reflections reveal its youth and promising future.
Nose: The bouquet is expressive, rich and intense, a wide aromatic spread of fruit and flowers: acacia blossom, molene, lime blossom, privet, citron, white peach, with a subtle touch of minerality that is elegant and still reserved.
Palate: On the palate, the tactile nature of the attack and structure induces an ecstatic gustatory sensation of great class that can only be given by a distinguished, proud Riesling, with its elegantly tense backbone of perfectly ripe acidity that has not yet reached the stage of over-ripeness. It is well-structured, juicy and almost luscious.
A wine to enjoy with highly gastronomic food : wild turbot, lobster, crayfish, pike and salmon, but which I can not resist the selfish urge to drink now.
