    July 28, 2017 - Full yellow. Typical pear and citrus. Medium weight, off dry, excellent soil, good acidity. Just suffers from a dip in intensity mid-palate, but otherwise perfectly sound.

    April 22, 2017 - Tasted blind. Enchanting nose full of minerals, fresh peaches, and sweet perfume. I really like this fresh nose. Tropical fruit up front with stunning clarity and balance throughout. Hints of Fruity Pebbles. Superb depth. When a wine is complex enough to challenge your ability to describe it, you know it's really good stuff.

    April 15, 2017 - With the group at Le Provencale

    No formal notes but the nose was very nice and wine went well with sweet breads with a light caper sauce.

    The light sweetness of the wine counterbalanced the sweet breads sauce

    Tasted non blind. Opened and served immediately. Followed over about an hour.

    Light yellow to yellow color in the glass, clear looking throughout. Nose of apricot, peach and brandy soaked pears. Flavors of pears, peaches and kumquats. Medium to bright acidity, full bodied. Drink or hold.

    (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.
