Half bottle from the wine list at Tewksbury Inn. Somewhat muted nose of florals and stone fruit, but great acidity structure. Good paired against grilled asparagus w/prosciutto, and with roasted scallops. Not as memorable as the 2010, but welcome nonetheless.
Light yellow color. I'm getting lots of lime, good stuff, on the nose and palate. Medium acidity, not the razor sharp I really like but balanced. A hint of rind and anise too. Super stuff for the price.
Beautiful frame of acidity and structure off of which hangs beautiful fruit with candied apples, a touch of marzipan and chiselled minerals. Elegant and opens up in the glass beautifully after an hour. Will age for years, but actually a beauty right now.
Opened yesterday, no decant. The acidity is present, mixing against lime, nectarine, mango, honey and a some drying astringence into the finish. Plenty of flavor intensity, no shortage of that but the wine still comes off a bit rough, lacks some delineation. Perhaps when that astringence softens out, it will all come together so for now, lots of raw material here.

(Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Haut Lieu Sec) Residual sugar 7 g/l, acidity 5.57 g/l, alcohol 13%. An attractive and floral nose here. This seems to be in a very classic, clean and expressive style, although it should be noted that this is still in the very primary stage, showing varietal, floral-pear fruit. The palate is very attractive, gentle, restrained, not overly exuberant and with what feels like a gentle acid backbone (although it has the higher acidity of the three sec cuvées). An attractive but easy-going style.
