Riesling Jubilee 2008

Famille Hugel

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

Terroir: Riesling Jubilee is sourced from the family owned vines on the steep slopes of the Schoenenbourg vineyard high above the village of Riquewihr. The vineyard is extremely steeply pitched and has an ideal south/ southeast exposure.

Vinification: The grapes are harvested by hand and brought to the winery in Riquewihr for additional sorting prior to vinification. After a strict sorting the grapes are pressed and fermented at cool temperatures in either stainless steel or large neutral oak casks. The young wines are then fed by gravity to the cellars for aging. Following aging the wines are lightly filtered, bottled and then stored until release to the market.

    "Pale-medium yellow. Lime, ginger, quinine and exotic flowers on the nose, along with a distinctive fusel quality and a nutty nuance. Tighter and less giving than the 2009 Jubilee; in a much less generous style owing to its penetrating minerality. Still a bit sharp-edged with acidity. If the 2009 will gain with more bottle aging, this one demands it. I would not be at all surprised if this merited a higher score several years down the road."
