Wine Advocate 87 points - Exceptionally for this cuvee, there is hardly any Sylvaner in Hugel?s 2011 Gentil, so as not to accentuate the low acidity of the vintage. And in fact, a nice sense of liveliness and refreshment has been achieved here against a juicy apple, green herb-tinged background, leading to a low-key but nuanced and satisfyingly sustained finish especially admirable in a wine of such modest price. But it should be enjoyed by the end of 2014. (I neglected to taste the corresponding 2010.) (Aug 2014)

This wine revives an ancient Alsace tradition that wines assembled from noble grape varieties were called "Gentil". Gentil "Hugel" allies the suave, spicy flavour of Gewurztraminer, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the grapiness of Muscat and the refreshing character of Sylvaner.
