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.

January 27, 2017 - An eclectic mix of nice wines with friends (Pine Lake Trout Club): Great showing for this wine. If anything, it got a bit underrated being the first wine. Golden in color. The nose is very nice especially once it warmed up. Citrus, mostly orange with a slight herbal note and a nice salinity to it. Also slight crushed shells. On the palate, slightly viscous, barely sweet. Nice complex if tight and young. Drinkable now but needs air. Easily a decade left in this with no degradation.

(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.
