found this little gem lurking in a wine list in Japanese restaurant Uni. this was awesome. note from memory, had golden color. nose was mostly secondary stuff as expected, but what drove this wine was a core of lemony acidity framed with waxy secondary notes. matched each dish stride for stride with ease, from the most delicate to the boldest flavors. this was nice tonight, and properly cellared I would guess will hang in for awhile. all about how you like your whites I suppose
Pungent and deeply funky with buckets of washed rind cheesy umami and dirty sex overlying bare overtones of beeswax and orchard fruits. Though lacking the psychedelic intensity of many older Huets, there was still that pleasingly dirty rawness, like a humid room where the ghost of a steamy, sweaty rendezvous still hangs heavily in the air.
What a fabulous wine. Still young and fresh but with more depth. Great mouth-feel and aromatics. Light body but striking, yet blanced, acidity. Now I know how these wines can age so well. Delish! Loved it and wish I had bought more...
