pretty much a pnp, some 30 min open. This had pronounced honey and lemon attack at first but followed with a significant bitter edge. This continued thoughout the bottle. Had not noticed this in previous bottles.
Really high class acidic structure. Maybe this has been aromatically even more vibrant a while ago, but nevertheless this is excellent. Maybe I still feel that the demi sec style is where these wines' personality really shines.
Still very young and still absolutely great. Intense on the palate with lemons and limestone. Quite shy on the nose. Not completely dry (although that's how I think I perceived it before), and a bit more body than before.
Once again, Huet has done its best. Nose difficult to guess blindly; of course the usual pine apple core (wich never point any region), and some shy honey and unspecific white wood glue. Mouth full of character , thick substance, lime and clementine. Fresh and mineral style with a real bitter end on orange peal. Loire makes the show. 2010 gives its best expression with a long life ahead. Exceptionnal Q/P ratio. Indeed it is possible to find better, but at not this price. Superb chenin.

(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.
