2011 Hugel Vendange Tardive Gewurztraminer 12x37.5
France / Alsace
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
A wine to enjoy on its own, or with foie gras, blue cheeses and fruit tarts. It could be kept for 20 years, but it enchants me already.
This Vendange Tardive 2007 is absolutely captivating, with fruit, perfume and aromas of lychee, mango, passion fruit, of flowers like rose, jasmine, peony, and some oriental spices, all soberly gathered together with great refinement. Sweet yet not cloying, irresistible, luscious and juicy yet not heavy, it tends to overpower your senses with delicacy and charm.
