Pinot Noir Classic 2016

Famille Hugel


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

Terroir: Pinot Noir accounts for just 8% of the overall Hugel production. The Pinot Noir Jubilee is sourced from the Pflostig Grand Cru, southeast of the village of Riquewihr.

Vinification: The grapes are taken in small tubs to the winery, they are 100% destemmed and macerated for 6 to 7 days. After malolactic 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.

    "Aromatic Morello and ripe red cherry dominate the nose. The light and translucent palate brims with freshness, purity and charm. This elegant wine is light but full of fresh red-fruited flavors."
