Hugel-Riesling-Jubilee-2007

Hugel, Riesling ''Jubilee'' , 2007

“Hugel’s 2007 Riesling Jubilee is even more intensely bright and citric than its 2005 counterpart, although their level of acidity is the same, and indeed – Mark Hugel points out – vintage-to-vintage regularity in gross chemical make-up is a characteristic for the estate’s top Schoenenbourg Riesling. Tangerine zest, thyme, pepper cress, and fusil and marine aromas prepare the way for a satiny palate saturated with illusive mineral as well as pungently herbal and citric flavors. The sense of palpable extract here is formidable, which – along with its pronounced acidity and minerality – makes for slight austerity, but the wine displays such penetration and grip as well as invigoration that it will prove fascinating in some contexts already, and has all the makings of yet another 20 or more year classic to set beside its many illustrious predecessors. Until the late 1980s, this bottling from the Schoenenbourg was known as ‘Reserve Personnelle.’” -Wine Advocate (92 Points)

“An open and airy Riesling, with deftly mixed flavors of apple blossom, star fruit, apricot and stone. Hints of spice and honey wind through the wine, lingering on the mouthwatering finish.” –Wine Spectator (91 Points)
