Pale straw color wheat in nature. Nose of leechy, quince, honey suckle and flower. Palate is where this wine shines with lush honey, pineapple juxtaposed with citrus rind, blanched nuts and white earth. Long finish of honey suckle.
Burnished light golden. More orange than pear plus a lick of honey. Off dry. Full, soft feel, nice fruit, a dusting of spices, but a little looser and less focused than I remember. Tasty as always, but this bottle lacked verve and acidity.

(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.
