Elegant and distinctively Alsatian Pinot Noir
Only 8 left
Proof that Pinot isn't all about Burgundy. This distinctive Alsace Pinot is a fantastically versatile food wine, with enough concentration to stand up to grilled meats and vegetables, and spicy cured meats, but with enough delicacy to pair with lighter foods and even meaty fish. Try this gem from France's 'other' Pinot Noir region.
"The first traces of the Hugel family in Alsace can be traced back to the XVth century. Some two centuries later, Hans Ulrich Hugel settled in Riquewihr, which had been devastated by the terrible Thirty Years War. In 1639 he was made a freeman of the city and soon took charge of the very powerful Corporation of Winegrowers. In 1672 his son built a fine house in the Rue des Cordiers, and over the doorway was carved the family crest which was the origin of the company’s logo still used today."
