Hard to say, this is still very youthful. Everyone loved it for its youthful vivacity and balance, but this has a ways to go before it really starts to shine. It does seem sweeter to me than other good vintages at a similar stage, so I'm hoping that time will address that.

Lobster night at home. I wanted to check in on this still young Huet. Full of lanolin, beeswax and some quinine. Great purity of fruit and the depth of the 2005 vintage is clear here as it still needs time to unwind. Nice today but much more potential. 50+13+12+8+8=91+(+?)
Yellow. Underripe pineapple. Textural but seems a bit lighter than usual for this cuvee. Off dry. Slightly crystallized tropical fruit is joined by a twist of citrus, and a ton of earth that I associate with Clos du Bourg carries through to the end. Excellent sugar/acid balance in this bottle. I've had this a few times this year. Whereas last time, I did not find a lot of structure, tonight was very different. Just a dream Demi-Sec in terms of balance.

(Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec) This is pleasing, not so expressive, rather it is gentle, subdued, perhaps a touch closed on the nose. It has a lovely presence on the palate though, textured and delineated, with a good weight, structure and substance. The character and interest will come with time in bottle. Lots of potential here I think.
