Famille Hugel - Pinot Noir Jubilee 2009


Hugel's "Jubilee" are sourced exclusively from family owned Grand Cru vineyards in the top terroirs in Alsace.

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 harvested by hand and brought to the winery in Riquewihr for additional sorting prior to vinification. The grapes are macerated for two weeks with daily punching of the cap to encourage extraction. The young wines are then fed by gravity to the cellars for 10 months of aging in small oak casks. About 10% of the barrels are new each vintage. Following aging the wines are lightly filtered, bottled and then stored until release to the market.

"Aromas of plums, cedar and foie gras. Turns to mushroom and flowers. Full to medium body. The wine starts off slowly and then develops on the palate. Super finish that's long and flavorful with light walnut, hazelnut and dark berries. Wonderful now to drink but will be better in 2017."
