Dark yellow in color, this medium bodied wine had fresh, crisp acidity and flavors of minerals and lemons. More developed than most Huets of a more advanced age with a medium plus length finish. When judged on it's own this is a really nice bottle fo wine but when viewed as part of the Huet continuum I find it lacking the depth, concentration and noble nature of so many other Huets. This is it's biggest fault, which may be an unfair way to judge the wine. 50+13+12+8+8 = 91

(Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec) A moderate golden colour, a significant change in comparison with the preceding wines. Real beauty on the nose here, gentle perfumed sweetness, with little elements of toffee and roasted nut. Golden fruits, all very fine. A lovely, fresh and really quite dry palate follows, gently fleshed out, rounded but firm, structured and composed. Complex, sappy, very delineated, with very good acidity, this is flattering, but firm rather than soft. A fine effort, and still on the way up for sure.
