his is an “off” vintage for Vouvray, but I enjoyed this a lot. Midbodied, touch of sweetness, blood orange and apple, some wooly notes. Good acids, nice length, not a classic but very tasty and works well with the food. B+
Medium yellow. Much better than the last time. Typical broad quince fruit. Off dry, excellent glyceral feel, strong acidity and a lingering sense of clay. The best bottle of this off vintage wine I've had. The acidity will carry it for some time.
Bright golden yellow, oily in texture. Peach, apricot, apple nose bringing resemblance to a mature riesling. On the palate not too intense, but having great balance. Lemon-lime dry, bittery finish. Very nice and likeable overall (B+).
Deep yellow. Uh oh-very oxidative tones at first. These persisted in the background to reveal a rich, acidic but undistinguished Clos du Bourg. I'm inclined to drink up, as this seems advanced at the least.
Started very honeyed with flowers, bergamot and lime. Then it slowly evolved to a more mineral, tertiary side. Some wool notes as well. Broad but focused on the palate, maybe a touch of RS but rather dry (obviously), the finish got longer as the bottle stayed open. A great acidity underneath the lushness of the wine. A very good Clos du Bourg.

(Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec Clos du Bourg) A fine nose, of minerals, pears, herbs and nettles, with little hints of richness in the shape of capsicum and lemon meringue. Overall though, fresh and vibrant. Richly composed palate, with great depth. Fresh and pithy, very structured, rounded and complete. This has a fine, grippy presence on the palate and has potential aplenty for the cellar.
(Huet Vouvray "Clos Du Bourg" Sec) Beautiful wine. I need to drink more Huet. Very aromatic nose of creamed corn, marzipan, brown sugar, tea leaf, wool, old Gouda cheese and mineral. Such a precise and focused nose. Palate is sharp as a razor with nice concentration and a firm structure. Dry with nice grainy fruit and very intense minerality. Acidity livens out the finish.
