Description

Famille Hugel Pinot Noir 2018

Famille Hugel Pinot Noir is an agreeable red wine that is very Alsace and very Pinot. Bright ruby colour. Classic nose expressing little red fruits such as cherry and red currant. The dry palate has soft and delicate tannins, a juicy acidity and displays the perfect style for a Hugel Classic Pinot. Young and easy fruity flavours of red cherry, currant, raspberry and just a hint of earth.

100% Pinot Noir. Exclusive hand harvesting of the grapes from clay and limestone vineyards in a dozen of the most favoured localities in and around Riquewihr.
The grapes are taken in small tubs to the winery. 100% destemming of the grapes and maceration for 6–7 days. After malolactic fermentation, the wine matures in vats until its bottling in early summer the following year. The bottles then age in Famille Hugel's cellars until they are ready for release.
