Famille Hugel Riesling Schoelhammer 2011

Famille Hugel Riesling Schoelhammer 

¥22,000

This dry Riesling was grown in the Famille Hugel's famous Schoelhammer plot. With great ageing potential, it comes from the finest vineyard slope of Riquewihr, historically known as Schoenenberg. 
Its triassic clay-marl terroir is farmed organically so as to best reveal the complexity of its rich sub-soil.
After extended bottle ageing in the family's historic cellars in Riquewihr, today this fine dry Riesling has achieved its first stage of development.

Cellaring

It is a little reserved, however, the slow aging in the bottle will bring out the potential of this wine more so than other wines.

In at least 5 to 8 years’ time it will have absolutely amazing mellowness and richness and it will show real underlying vitality.

Winery Description

The house of Hugel was established in Riquewihr, a town in a continental cultivation area with no climatic influence from the Atlantic Ocean, in the Alsace district in 1639.

The Hugel family has kept up the golden rule that “The quality of the wine depends on the grapes themselves” for more than 12 generations over 360 years and it has made its mark on grape cultivation and winemaking history. Starting with its Generic wine that expresses the characteristics of each grape variety and vintage, Famille Hugel boasts a superior line-up with the Jubilee which is made from only handpicked harvests from the best sections, the Vendange Tardive, made from late harvested grapes and the Selection de Grains Nobles using grapes affected by noble rot.

Having started on the wine lists of the finest restaurants in France, the famous name of Famille Hugel is known all over the world and is currently exported to 120 countries.
