Domaine Huet Vouvray Masterclass 1934 - 2007 (West London Wine School): Deep amber and browning. Clear and bright. Candid peel and intense sweetness on the nose. Big. Very sweet start, young but with good acidity. Needs more time to integrate.

Domaine Huet Vouvray Masterclass 1934 - 2007 (West London Wine School): Some bottle variation (two bottle tasting). Very dark amber colour. Fresh floral nose with angelica, pears and peaches - vibrant (second bottle less expressive with more honey notes). Creme Brûlée, long, rich, honeyed, fabulous balance - wow. Second bottle showed less development. The first bottle was mind-blowing, the second merely good!

Domaine Huet Vouvray Masterclass 1934 - 2007 (West London Wine School): Somewhat of an oddity, known as the "German Vintage" for obvious reasons. Dark amber almost brown with some suspended sediment. Strange earthiness with almost a play-do and cheese in there. Strangeness follows through on the palate - light, notes of apples. Not fine, almost like a home made wine.
