January Wednesday Wine Committees are always a great as the red wines are required to be 11yrs old, making all of the reds 2008 vintage. 1 sparkler, 2 whites, 4 reds and 1 dessert wine were served today, all blind.

This was a very solid gewürztraminer that came across fairly light. Acidity didn’t show until the very end. Light and crisp. Not much lychee notes, but it had that orange blossom, baked apple pie and sweet tropical stone fruit notes that I expect.

Oh what a tease this wine was! It slowly revealed itself to us and boy were we floored. Paired so well with Alaskan king Crab and was a the perfect ending to my 30th birthday!

Very young color, pale green. Medium(-) aromatic. Elegant with freshness of yellow fruits, quince, flowery. On the palate it is dry, not heavy and balanced. A not exuberant wine to drink young. Very basic among Hugel wines. The winemaker complained that rarely have they seen a vintage subject to so many variations in the weather. But we know other winemakers were just fine. Hugel & Fils is a winery and negociant based in Alsace, which has been making wine for almost 400 years. Rating 3,5/5
