Community Tasting Notes 6

    January 25, 2022 - Seems off-dry to me. More of a sipping wine, allowing the wine to unfold on the palate. Initially very herbal and chamomile, and then unfolding to pear and apples, oxidized. I would have enjoyed a bit more fruit.

    September 4, 2020 - Tasted after 2016 Pinot Gris Estate. Very herbal, dense, layered. Notes of pear, yellow stone fruit, hints of minerality. Pretty heavy and a little alcoholic on the palate. Long. 89-91

    May 14, 2020 - Hay yellow; honey and pear; rich and rounded with intense (too) burning aftertaste, sour notes throughout with a bit of sweetness in the back; could be good with richness etc but seems somehow out of sync

    March 24, 2018 - WineBox 10y - Master class – ‘Alsace: Fruit & Terroir – Side by Side’- Jean-Frederic Hugel: 2/3 of the crop coming from limestone bringing elegance, 1/3 from clay for power
    Clean fresh nose on the fruity side. Body – full, intense, oily, powerful but well balanced, finishes very long. Balance is impeccable, the alcohol 15% alc – global warming is felt in Alsace as well.

    March 24, 2018 - Somewhat oxidized and highly traditional style of wine, but apparently at winemaker's control. Seems barrel aged in a neutral oak for several years, dense viscosity, rich straw with hint of cloudiness. Weighty neutral fruit and low-florality honey needing more interest otically, sweet palate impression dusted with mint powder, and fine length. With the right dish this could be an inspired wine. Now through 2022.
