Famille Hugel 2009 Vendange Tardive Pinot Gris

Youthful in colour, linden green with lemon yellow hints, like a fully ripe bunch of white grapes, with no sign of age or oxidation, lively and star bright. Softly rich and unctuous, the wine clings to the glass. The bouquet is aromatic, expressively grapey, nicely ripe yet not over-ripe, allowing the charm of the Pinot Gris to shine though, young, fresh and airy. Aromas of white peach, candied citrus fruit, citron marmalade, marshmallow, liquorice, mullein, acacia blossom, elderflower, hop flower, a deft touch of woodsmoke, iodine and damp moss. On the palate, the wine is tasty, almost juicy, yet not excessively sweet thanks to a good structure and a joyful, attractive liveliness. Still rather young, this wine of multiple charms will attract all those who wish to be conquered.
