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 is a particularly fascinating region of France when it comes to wine and wine culture. The long, slender Germanic style bottles we often see coming out of Alsatian wineries have become iconic of the region's wine industry, and for centuries, such bottles have been the favorites of the crowned heads of Europe. Riesling and Gewurztraminer have always been the two primary grapes of Alsace, however, there are nine different varietals permitted by French law, most of them being used to make white wine. Alsace produces over a hundred million liters of wine per year, which are exported across the globe and enjoyed by people seeking a fine wine offering something a little different. As such, Alsace is an important global wine producing region, with a character and set of flavors and features which are all its own.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
