Pinot Gris Classic, Famille Hugel 2017 – wine of the month November 2019

A lovely Alsace Pinot Gris, a bright lemon green colour with aromas of primrose, lemon, pear and peach. Will be great with seafood. Harvested by hand from vineyards on clay and limestone soil. 2017 was a difficult year for growers in Alsace but this shows what could be achieved despite that. At just £7.50 for a half bottle from the Wine Society it’s a bargain.
