Description:
The vintage: Our 360th vintage in Alsace will remain in memory as one of the most significant in volume with very variable results according to yields. All year the weather played with our nerves; after normal bud-break, a very hot May, an extended flowering, a large hailstorm hit the Schoenenbourg slope on August 6. Mixed weather followed until the harvest but luckily September was hot and dry. If for the purchased grapes the results will depend on the yield, in our own estate, the wines are exceptional. Acidity levels are excellent predicting well balanced wines.

In the vineyard: Produced from over-ripened grapes, picked one by one in a selection of the oldest plots of the Hugel estate in the heart of the grand cru Sporen made up of Lias clay-marl, decalcified on the surface, exceptionally rich in phosphoric acid
Harvest date : 5 Nov. 1999
Potential alcohol : 18°7

Winemaking: The grapes are taken in small tubs to the presses, which are filled by gravity, without any pumping or other mechanical intervention. After pressing, the must is decanted for a few hours, then fermented in temperature-controlled barrels or vats (at 18 to 24°C). The wine is racked just once, before natural clarification during the course of the winter. The following spring, the wine is lightly filtered just before bottling, and the bottles are then aged extensively in our cellars until released for sale.

Producer Information

From the Middle Ages, Riquewihr was renowned for "the most noble wines of all the country". The Hugel family's vineyard estates cover more than 25 hectares, exclusively in Riquewihr, and almost half of which are in the Grand Cru zone. No use of fertiliser, low yields, vines averaging thirty years of age, thinning out of excess bunches, and picking always by hand, are all factors which contribute to rigorously high levels of quality.
The finest vineyards of the region
In addition to its own estates, the Hugel family purchases grapes and grapes alone, from growers under long-term contract, farming more than 100 hectares. Thanks to the skill of their growers, a dozen of the best villages of Alsace thereby contribute to the quality of "Hugel" wines.
Their grapes are also always picked by hand, and according to a pre-arranged timetable.
