Hugel Jubilee Riesling 2009

75.00

The esteemed grand cru Schoenenbourg vineyard has been producing amazing Riesling for centuries. The particular vines for this Jubilee are 30 years old, sustainably farmed, and only the best fruit makes the cut for the Jubilee. 2009 was a fabulous vintage in Alsace with record levels of ripeness leading to rich and harmonious wines. The result is truly a classic, profound Riesling with beautiful minerality and a long, complex finish. The fantastic terroir is made up of the finest varieties of gravel and limestone including keuper, marl, dolomite, gypsum, quaternary siliceous gravel, Vosges sandstone and Muschelkalk.

Very attractive straw yellow color, deep, intense and shimmering, crystal clear with green hints and soft, velvety tears that trickle down the glass. The bouquet is aromatic and fresh with depth and complexity showing fruit, floral tones and a subtle rocky minerality. The palate is elegant and remarkably well balanced with generous, ripe fruit upheld by fresh acidity and a long, complex finish. Magnificent to enjoy already, it will age particularly well for 5 to 15 years. Serve this highly gastronomic wine at 8°C, perhaps decanted, with Thai cusine, sea perch, lobster, crayfish, or rack of veal with mushrooms
