The second Pinot Blanc in my Alsace tasting lineup was Hugel Pinot Blanc Cuvee Les Amours 2009. I uncorked it over the weekend and paired it with an array of shellfish. It was a fantastic combination!
This Pinot Blanc pours a pale, golden straw color in the glass with delicate aromas cantaloupe, watermelon and pear. The palate offers bright flavors and crisp acidity. Honeysuckle, honeydew, citrus and watermelon are followed with toasted nuts and a dry finish. Definite enjoyment for your taste buds! ($16, 12% alcohol)
Food Pairing Suggestions – Great with crabs legs, sushi or as an aperitif
My Wine Rating – B+
