2005 Hugel 'Cuvee les Amours' Pinot Blanc
Asian cuisine, light seafood
The importer is promoting this "Lovers' Blend" as something special for Valentine's Day, but you don't need to be an ardent romantic to enjoy this well-made dry white wine. Its creamy texture is offset by good acidity, and its vibrant flavors of pear, apple, spices, minerals and honey come together in a way that will stand up to spicy food. All in all, an admirable and economical alternative to chardonnay.
