Gentil HUGEL 2012

 AOC Alsace

"Very nice spicy flavour of Gewurztraminer, the body of Pinot Gris, the finesse of Riesling, the grapiness of Muscat and the refreshing character of Sylvaner. "

 Refreshing, crisp, light, very summery, typical white wine from Alsace.

I would pair it with this asparagus and spinach mousse with prosciutto.
