Hugel et Fils - Tradition Pinot Gris 2011White Wine
Attractively youthful pale green colour, lively and crystal clear, with lemon yellow hints.
The bouquet is precise and harmonious, clear and fruit-driven, refreshingly scented with white peach and greengage, complemented by floral notes of almond blossom, and a delicate hint of cardamom and liquorice stick.
A soft, dry wine, just vinous enough to reveal its underlying succulent richness, it fills the mouth with a subtle touch of freshness that quenches the thirst and calls for more. It has a very long, ripe fruit finish.
A wine to drink now, and over the next five years, as a nicely gastronomic partner for river or sea fish in crayfish, lobster or spicy sauce, with lamb curry, red mullet fillet with curcuma, monkfish with saffron, but it will also go well with poultry, pheasant, white meat, veal chop with mushrooms, game terrine and duck foie gras.
