Community Tasting Notes (average 91.4 pts. and median of 91 pts. in 10 notes) - hiding notes with no text

 Tasted by WineGeneral on 2/2/2013 & rated 90 points: Very honeyed aromas and flavors. Had I been blind tasting this, I would have thought it was a demi-sec as it seems unusually sweet for a sec. (1452 views)
 Tasted by johndefi on 12/1/2012 & rated 92 points: Wow. Apricot, slate stone and honey on the nose. Hits the palate with honey-like sweetness and transitions into a fresh lemon acidity. The lemon is pure and delicious. The acidity is powerful and well integrated. With the lemon comes a stony note. Somewhere towards the end some green apple hints appear. The weight starts a bit heavier at first with the sweetness and then lightens at the mid palate. Finish is medium to long. (1545 views)
 Tasted by gwkozar on 3/29/2012 & rated 91 points: POP. Drank w salmon and spicy shrimp. Still a bit tight. Clean, dry lemons and limes, minerals on palte and finsish, rsg is there but well balanced with acidity.
Willrrt to save last bottle for 2+ years. (1845 views)
 Tasted by jcha24 on 1/3/2012: drank over 4 hours with a slight decant to start. loved the acidity and the length grew with more air. really nice bottle and something I will grab a few more of for the future. (2140 views)
 Tasted by BradKNYC on 8/20/2011: TN: A few wines at Paul's baconpalooza (Paul's): Salvation on a hot and humid day. Precise and invigorating with quince, almond, mineral and yellow fruit flavors and aromas. It's showing a surprising amount of residual sugar for a Sec and a quick check later on the stats chart I got at the domaine confirms that there's actually13.5 g/l in it. As a comparison, there's only 8.5 g/l in the '09 and 6.0 g/l in the '05. That said, the wine is brilliantly balanced. Just a delight to drink. Solid A-. (2355 views)
 Tasted by gwkozar on 5/19/2011 & rated 91 points: bright lighter yellow. Clean sharp, pears, honey, strong stoney fruit gives a long finsh. (1194 views)
 Tasted by dream on 1/5/2011 & rated 91 points: Delicious wine with excellent intensity and fruit concentration. Lovely unusual flavors of nutmeg and honey. Long, spicy satisfying finish. Really good and authentic juice. (1317 views)
 Tasted by Anonymous on 10/3/2010 & rated 92 points: Good, straw color. Nose of pears, butterscotch, green apples. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body. Tangy. Nice, long finish. (1437 views)
 Tasted by MRichman on 8/14/2010: Bright, lemony, limey, acidic with honeysuckle and wax. Med-Light bodied with a long lemon finish. Silky with a hint of spritz. Clean and clear and refined. I think this will improve with a few years in bottle, although I have little experience to back this up. Very nice.

Winedoctor, September 2009
(Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec) Residual sugar here is 13 g/l. Pears, honeyed fruits, floral tones, very fresh. Very good style on entry, a touch fatter than Le Haut Lieu, and more spice here too. More depth. Still a delicious wine, just as it was in Angers. Lots of grip and spice in the midpalate here, and overall really great substance, leading into a fine, honeyed-fruit finish.  18+ points

Winedoctor, February 2009
(Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec) Pear and bitter stone fruits on the nose of this wine, which doesn't seem too expressive otherwise. The palate is superb though; fresh and clean, with good substance through the midpalate, florally precise fruit and lots of stony acidity. Firm and defined through to the finish. This is really impressive; a true vin de garde.  17.5-18+ points
