    December 24, 2014 - Lobster night at home. I wanted to check in on this still young Huet. Full of lanolin, beeswax and some quinine. Great purity of fruit and the depth of the 2005 vintage is clear here as it still needs time to unwind. Nice today but much more potential. 50+13+12+8+8=91+(+?)

    December 20, 2014 - Yellow. Underripe pineapple. Textural but seems a bit lighter than usual for this cuvee. Off dry. Slightly crystallized tropical fruit is joined by a twist of citrus, and a ton of earth that I associate with Clos du Bourg carries through to the end. Excellent sugar/acid balance in this bottle. I've had this a few times this year. Whereas last time, I did not find a lot of structure, tonight was very different. Just a dream Demi-Sec in terms of balance.

    September 13, 2014 - Huet tasting Sec, Demi-Sec and Moelleux from different vintages (Andis Home): Colour: Light yellow
    Nose: Firstly again this very conspicuous mix of confectioner's sugar mixed with vanillin. Then more orange & lemon aromas than in the Sec. Also pear and kumquat.
    Palate: The higher sugar level is good for the wine. Give it a bit more roundness & brighter shoulders. Good acidity which keeps everything in balance. Again a nice spicy, ginger note on the mid-palate. Medium+ body. Medium finish.

    August 3, 2014 - Really pleasant Vouvray that is perfectly ready to go and holds up well before, during, and after dinner. Light to medium body, with a touch of sweetness but an elegant profile, this is a lot of fun to drink in the summer. A-

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec) This is pleasing, not so expressive, rather it is gentle, subdued, perhaps a touch closed on the nose. It has a lovely presence on the palate though, textured and delineated, with a good weight, structure and substance. The character and interest will come with time in bottle. Lots of potential here I think.
