It has been almost a year since my last bottle, and although this is still very young, it feels a bit softer around the edges. Crushed stones and some lemons on the nose. Intense on the palate with a high acidity (but not quite as dominating as before) and a slightly viscous (a hint of wax), chalky and lemony mouthfeel. Long. A fantastic wine with loads of potential to develop further!
Much better than previous bottle earlier this year, open an hour and consumed over another hour, initially sharp lemon but softened with time and was softer and fuller, some heavier weight citrus fruit helped this to mellow. Well balanced and good future.

(Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Mont Sec) Residual sugar 9 g/l, alcohol 13.2%. A polished and sweeter feel to the fruit here, gentle with a beautiful purity to it. There is more substance on the palate though; although it still maintains an elegant balance it has a substantial fruit character with great substance and structure too it as well. It is perhaps the most severe of the three sec cuvées, although I think Clos du Bourg comes pretty close in that regard. Certainly showing bags of structure and citrusy acidity on the palate, so from that point of view it certainly is the least approachable.
