    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant) The wine has a good colour, with some evident richness, and a full pétillance. The nose is fascinating; it is immediately seductive with its rich, toothsome fruit aromas, but this is a fleeting impression on opening the bottle, and the prevailing style is more restrained than this comment suggests. There are notes of honey-drizzled sponge but these co-exist with vibrant, exuberant citrus fruits, even little hints of mango and peach. The character here is so exotic, so characterful, it is small wonder that Noël avoided using a première trie for the dosage, opting for a less rich demi-sec blend instead. I note that there is also a stony firm character to the aromatic fruit as well, though, giving some hint of balance. Rich and seductive in terms of texture, but with a very straight, lean, steel-tinged fruit character, with a good sense of frmness to the fruit. Sappy, restrained, almost a hint of sourness to it at the edge as well, so in the mouth this is certainly less seductive than the nose suggested, also less rich in comparison to some other recent vintages. A fine style.

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant) Residual sugar 8 g/l, acidity 5 g/l, alcohol 12%. This vintage has been dosed with a liqueur made from a blend of demi-sec from the 2001 and 2002 vintages. It has a lovely, grainy fruit quality on the nose. A very fine style on the palate; very pure in character, upright, classic and restrained. Very soft and easy-going pétillance at this stage in the wine's evolution, with a lovely acid backbone, and a minerally, matchsticky reductive character. Fine.
