It's been nearly 4 years since the last one, and, as expected, it's travelling a very fine path. Opened up at about the 45 minute mark with vibrant aromas and lively acids floating the not insignificant stone fruits and crushed rocks swirling all about. Likely to hit its peak in just a few more years and hold there for a decade, if not longer. Impressive, immensely pleasurable drop; get some if you can. recommended
Light tulip yellow. Bright citrus and musky florality. Magical weight, balanced between glycerine fleshiness yet a real sense of lightness. Off dry with marvelous combination of orange and pear. Deeply embedded at the back end is intense grapefruit pith (which brought Sancerre to mind) and a ton of soil. This somehow manages to achieve great balance despite lower acidity than years such as 2002 or 2010. Just delicious and it seemed tighter and better structured than it was when I last tried it about 2 years ago. I certainly hope this is true since I have a lot of this left to drink through!

(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.
