My impression of the Hugel Riesling is that it is elegant in a mild way, even though it tastes fresh and tight. It is very drinkable; I had three glasses at one go. It does not keep that well though; when I drank it a day after the taste was different. Riesling might just become my favourite white, after pouilly-fume. I think I like minerally, dry wines.
