Winedoctor

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Cuvée Constance) A rich and golden orange hue. A truly fabulous nose, simply loaded with the aromas of crystalline honey, sweet pastries, clean and evocative, with rich, crunchy and well defined fruit and yet it sings of ethereal precision as well. There is great definition and sweetness, all with an intense, precise, smoky, golden-honeycomb lift. This is just remarkable. I lingered over the aromatics of this wine more than any other at this tasting. Pure on entry, defined and rich, supple and yet full of layers of rich botrytis-influenced fruit, this wine has an incredible presence on the palate, very broad and yet it doesn't for one moment feel heavy or flat. It is a tour de force in selection and winemaking, impressing not with power or absolute level of residual sugar but in the way it dances purely across the palate. Absolutely stunning. A class apart.

    (Huet Vouvray "Cuvee Constance") I was very excited to try this. It was closed, awkward and weird. There was nice botrytis development as the nose was praline, dusty spicey earth, marmalade and almonds. The palate was kind of blah-zay with not much going on and turned in on itself. Nice wine for sure with a killer finish and good acidity and freshness but give this 50 years and check back. Full bottle too. Maybe would be a touch more developed in a 1/2 bottle.
