What I’ve been drink­ing this month

Decanter - - LETTERS -

Hugel, Ries­ling Ven­dan­ges Tar­dives 1945. I apol­o­gise for shar­ing tast­ing notes on a wine that is pretty much im­pos­si­ble to get hold of, but we should all cel­e­brate the fact that this wine has not only sur­vived but thrived. A deep am­ber in colour, this is still liv­ing and breath­ing; a stun­ning mix of sharp yet rich cit­rus mar­malade with a minty edge typ­i­cal of the Schoel­ham­mer plot that the grapes come from. An in­cred­i­ble tes­ta­ment to the po­ten­tial of Al­sace.
