Oldest cellar dates back to 1551, with rows of oak wine casks, over one hundred years old, crafted by the forefathers of the present generation of Hugels. The oldest cask in the world still in use: the Sainte Caterine, a capacity of 8,800 litres, built in 1715, the year Louis XIV died. Aromas of fruit & citrus aromas. Palate stone & tropical flavors, citrus notes, vivid acidity, medium finish. Nice! — 4 days ago
50/50 Pinot & Chardonnay. 15m on the lees, brut nature and full bio.
The red fruit is dominant, a bit wild but pure drinking pleasure. Nice bubbles and juicy acidity. Nice. — 5 days ago
This stuff rules. I’ve always been kind of “Meh” about Pinot Blanc before, but I guess I never had the good shit. This, my friends, is why you should occasionally revisit styles you think you don’t like. — 8 months ago
Super peachy upfront, less ripe on the palate. Crisp with lots of minerally stone fruit. $27 with shrimp, asparagus, and artichoke spring risotto — 17 days ago
Incredibly precise: excellent acidity, with lime and white flowers, minerality, and not too much density on the palate. Had it with an asparagus and ricotta quiche and it was pretty much perfect. — a month ago
Off the Crownshy NYC list, this has a nicely developed medium gold color with young and strong, fine bubbles. Notes of brioche toast, lemon creme, some apricot and river stone. Gave the impression of an older champagne but had the power and freshness of a young wine. My first experience with this producer. Very nice. — 15 days ago
