Vinous:  "Vivid straw-gold. Captivating aromas and flavors of orange marmalade, violet tisane, papaya, mango and guava nectar.  Lovely rich, deep, smooth late-harvest Gewürz (110 g/L residual sugar and 4 g/L total acidity).  Finishes extremely long and multilayered.  This has the explosive aromas and flavors of a memorable, truly great Gewürztraminer in the making; I especially like its refinement, no doubt due to the high but harmonious acidity of the 2010 vintage.  8,000 bottles made."  Apr 2018

Robert Parker, Jr's Wine Advocate:  "The 2010 Gewurztraminer Vendange Tardive is based on much more botrytis grapes than the 2009 and displays a clear and intense lemon flavor on the nose.  "This was a marvelous botrytis," says Marc Hugel, who is in deeply in love with the 2010, for good reasons!  The wine is terribly rich, precise and elegant, super concentrated, complex and straight, developing a great finesse and length.  A gorgeous wine harvested with 18.3% potential alcohol and bottled with 12.1% alcohol, plus 105 grams of residual sugar."  Apr 2017 

Winery:  "These wines made from overripe grapes are picked well after the classic vintage and in the greatest years only.  The action of noble rot (botrytis cinerea) gives them an almost unlimited ability to age.  They are part of the elite of the greatest wines in France.

Produced from over-ripened grapes in a selection of the oldest plots of the Hugel estate in the heart of the grand cru Sporen made up of Lias clay-marl, decalcified on the surface, exceptionally rich in phosphoric acid.

Superb wines with magnificent balance, purity and fruit.  2010 is a great classic vintage, with good aging potential."
