Hugel et Fils Gentil "Hugel" 2005 Wine Review (NW)
Nose of pear and lychee
Apple on the palate, with little backbone
Note of grapefruit and pear on the finish
This is an "okay" wine. It's not exciting or interesting. Actually, it tastes a little flat like a tired Pinot Blanc. I was hoping it would have a little more zip- and it probably does most years. I'd be willing to say that maybe my bottle was somewhat tainted but I don't know for sure.
The wine cost $11 or so, and is widely available. I enjoy wines from Alsace and would be willing to give this another chance at that price. Raise a fresh glass!
