Review: 2006 Hugel Pinot Gris Classic Alsace
Now featuring label artwork by Ralph Steadman, this is not your father’s Hugel, the wine with the iconic yellow label.
Tart with minerals up front, Hugel’s Pinot Griss “Classic” is light in body and reveals peach, mango, and vaguely tropical notes before fading into a more alcohol-driven, lightly bitter finish. Otherwise it’s an easy-drinking summer wine… too bad summer’s in its final days.
