A class act. Very pale lemon-gold, intense aromas of citrus, green almonds and green apples. Dry with mid to high acidity, stone fruit, the expected apple and quince taste with just an echo of honey, and a delicate but definite body, leading to a huge finish.
Epic Boys Trip; 6/13/2012-6/17/2012 (Napa and San Francisco): Moderate depth of color, very aromatic with loads of apple, quince, and juicy pineapple aromas. Nice background minerality, no new oak. On the palate dry with very high acidity that is enveloped by a very lush texture, low alcohol. Fantastic balance, average length, great intensity, good complexity at this stage. Wine has loads of finesse, a very full and fine texture, classic expression of place. This is drinking quite young and will improve for plenty of years to come… typical classy wine you expect from this producer and vineyard that will improve with age
Consumed over two nights. The first night the wine was fruit forward, more demi-sec than sec, intense stone fruits and lemon... second night, the wine showed more restraint, nose of lemon, dried honey, palate of bitter lemon, lime, stone fruit (peach, some tropical fruit), acidity. It begs for shrimp. It is delicious now, but might be better if decanted several hours... but really warrants a long cellar slumber.

(Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Mont Sec) A very floral nose here, tighter and more concentrated than Le Haut Lieu in this vintage, and not so expressive. A fine, stone fruit style, lovely texture, firm and finely balanced. There is a lot of good substance here, great built-up structure and a fine length too. This is an impressive wine with plenty of promise.
