  • Elegant, not too sweet and too young. It's still coming together.

  • Drank side-by-side with a Doisy-Daene 2004 Sauternes. I must admit my preference for the latter. I couldn't get passed the aromas of green apple in this wine. It's definately more "digest" and elegant than the Sauternes, and has a nice acidity. But it reminded me of a 15$ apple cider (without the bubbles). I was expecting alot from this bottle. but clearly will not be looking for more. Maybe this is just not my cup of tee...

  • A little less sweet and less acidic than I expected, but still beautiful. The Sec version leaned towards demi-, and this was only mildly sweeter. Great texture, sweet orchard fruit, saline and limestone. Seems to be restrained or holding back. Not even a hint of any tertiary Chenin scents or flavors. I'll defer opening another for a few years, but have no regrets draining this one.

  • This is lovely and delicious. It has the weight and texture of a trocken bis feinherb Riesling with a little sea mineral and an oiled cloth or beeswaxed wood perception. It is quite nice.

  • The wine is clear and bright with a medium lemon colour and presence of legs. The nose is clean and developing, showing medium+ intensity aromas of pyrazine, lime, lemon juice, quince, ginger and subtle hints of honey. The wine is medium-sweet in the mouth with a high zesty acidity. It has a medium alcohol and medium+ body. It has pronounced intensity flavours of pyrazine, lemon juice, quince, ginger and hints of honey. The finish is long.

    It is a very good quality wine that shows a lot of typicity, has a great flavour concentration and a lingering finish. However it could be even more complex. Can drink now, but it has enough acidity and fruit concentration to develop more complexity over the next 10+ years.

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec) Residual sugar 24 g/l, alcohol 13.2%. The nose here is very bright, elegant and defined, showing some very pure, light-white fruit, with a floral, feminine style to it. The palate is just lovely, not a powerful or substantial style but one of pretty and floral fruit, as suggested aromatically, supported by a deliciously incisive acidity and the weight of the residual which has a lovely presence through the middle. And on the finish there is a twist of ripe, honeyed fruit. Quite long too. Stylish and elegant.
