Geoffrey reviewed this wine:
Hugel Gentil is a blend of Sylvaner, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris, Riesling, Gewurtztraminer and Muscat from a winery making wine since 1639. If you want to read more about Alsace the Hugels and all the interesting war time intrigues, I highly suggest picking up Wine and War by Don and Petie Kladstrup. The Gentil is a crisp straw colour with the scent of green apples, fresh citrus rind, faint petrol and a little wisp of fish free sea breeze. The fresh, ripe Alsatian acidity is definitely there (a very good thing indeed). The mouthfeel is creamy and viscous with a good slate and mineral note, this wine feels almost like licking wet quartz. The finish is short to medium with a nice crisp finish. Might I suggest Thai shrimp curry with pineapple?
