Description
A classic example of the ancient Alsatian tradition of a 'field blend' combining a multitude of grape varieties, this vivacious white is made from Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewurztraminer, Pinot Blanc, Sylvaner and a dab of Muscat. Fresh, floral, tangy and zippy, it'll pair nicely with herbed chicken, turkey or pork dishes. Excellent value from an iconic producer.
Tasting Notes
Pale bright yellow. Fresh aromas of mirabelle, nectarine, tangerine, minty herbs and crushed stone. Quite dry, juicy and elegant, featuring stone fruit and mineral flavors sexed up by a flinty nuance on the end. Still a bit youthfully tight, but this is a marvelous Gentil, the best I remember from Hugel in years. It's a delicious, lovely, fresh wine that, though not the last word in complexity, is easygoing and full of early appeal. A very complex blend of Sylvaner, Riesling, Pinot Blanc/Auxerrois, and Pinot Gris, plus a little Gewürztraminer, Muscat Ottonel and Muscat d'Alsace; 40 years ago Gentil used to be at least 40% Sylvaner but in recent times the blend of Pinot Blanc and Auxerrois had taken over, to my mind one of the main reasons for Gentil's downfall. What one wants from a Gentil is mineral florality and freshness, not heavy-handed, honeyed and spicy aromas and flavors. Drinking Window: 2018-2023. Score - 90. (Ian D'Agata, vinous.com, April 2018)
