Famille Hugel


Writing for Decanter, Master of Wine Andy Howard tasted across the range of wines produced by Hugel, one of the oldest names in wine making. I attended the same tasting and can concur that the wines were on excellent form. 381 years on and the 13th generation of this family-run producer are by no means resting on their laurels.

The tasting showed that these wines are benchmarks for their respective grape varieties, with higher quality tiers adding extra layers of complexity, concentration and individuality. The purity of flavour described was certainly evident – Hugel observing ‘we believe winemaking is the opposite of terroir. We want to show as little of it as possible’.
