Professional Wine Reviews for Hugel Et Fils Tokay Pinot Gris Selection De Grains Nobles 1998

Rated 94 by Robert Parker
The sweet peach-scented 1998 Tokay-Pinot Gris 'Hugel' Selection de Grains Nobles is crammed with unctuous layers of smoky yellow fruits. This botrytis-laden wine is full-bodied, complex (everything from porcini mushrooms to bananas can be found in its character), and extremely long in the finish. Anticipated maturity: 2005-2015.

Additional Information on Hugel Et Fils Tokay Pinot Gris Selection De Grains Nobles 1998

Winery: Hugel Et Fils

Region: Alsace

Alsace has to be one of the most fascinating regions of France, with a history which stretches back millennia, and demonstrates perfectly the kind of blended culture that can arise from being located on the border between two enormously important, yet very different countries. Indeed, being on the border between France and Germany has resulted in Alsatian wines being something of a mix between the wines of these two countries. Riesling varietal grapes are grown in enormous quantities here, and display all of their crisp, dry complexity perfectly in the famous wines of Alsace. Alongside this typically Germanic wine, Alsatian vintners also produce plenty of Pinot Noir, Gewurztraminer, Muscat and Sauvignon Vert wines, all of which are superb when it comes to expressing the finer features of the wonderful Alsatian terroir.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
