Winedoctor

    January 2011, (See more on Winedoctor...) 17.5+ points

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux Première Trie) Residual sugar 65.2 g/l, alcohol 12.1% The nose here shows why aging Vouvray is essential as already it is displaying the deep, complex minerality swirled with honey and acacia and honeysuckle, all in a frame of crunchy golden fruit, that more mature wines display. When it comes together like this these wines can seem almost ethereal. And yet it is still so very young! As you might expect it has a beautiful substance in the mouth, showing a slightly more reserved drier style than some of the previous vintages, the effect of age plus a slightly more restrained residual (for a première trie). Very fresh and precise but well covered acidity, good purity, floral overtones too, a very sweet and elegant style. A long, polished, substantial finish. This is delicious, although it is not up with the greatest vintages.
