The Hugel Gentil revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines produced from a blend of noble varietals were called "Gentil". Gentil has become a joyous, convivial wine whose arrival the Hugel family always awaits with impatience in the spring following each vintage.
Gentil shows pure, fresh aromas, very fruit-driven and floral, as well as expressive and flattering. On the palate, this dry wine has a lively, youthful fresh character that is refreshing, with a pleasant, scented finish. Gentil is a perfect wine to sip with friends or to enjoy with simple everyday meals. Gentil is best enjoyed chilled with saltwater and freshwater fish, shellfish, starters and hors d'oeuvres."
