From all the wine regions, only Alsace and southern Rhône were the wine regions of France where vintage 2007 was rated with the perfect A mark by the influential Wine Spectator.
Overall, wine lovers seeking the elegance and balance that typifies classic Alsatian wines should be pleased with 2007. The vintage, said, Etienne Hugel of Hugel & Fils, "ended up with one of the longest harvesting times in recent years [and] with overall longest hang time from blossoming to picking. Just what the doctor ordered. [It] should turn out to be a great classic vintage for us in Alsace."
