    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.

    December 23, 2016 - Servi en parallèle avec le Clos Häuserer 2001 de Zind-Humbrecht sur un foie gras de canard, il n'a pas vraiment trouvé sa place. Trop délicat et introverti pour lutter avec le style sec, extraverti et baroque du cru alsacien. Il faut se méfier du style Huet lorsque les circonstances de dégustation sont manifestement plus favorables aux vins directs et puissants.

    L'accord était quelconque.

    La douceur (analytiquement = 17,6g) était relativement peu perceptible, malgré le parallèle avec le Zind de type "indice 1".

    December 16, 2016 - Full yellow. Typical quince scents. Medium weight, not terribly concentrated for Vouvray. It has a lemony core that I don't think I've experienced before in this wine. Thereafter, more expected honey and spice, only off dry. Impressive in its youthfulness and no oxidation whatsoever. Excellent.

    (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.
