    September 8, 2019 - Medium yellow. Classic pear and yellow apple. Off dry, not as austere as true sec can be. Some glycerine but not particularly generous texture due to back end minerality. Pure and very fresh with spice laden fruit. I definitely don't sense the screaming level of acidity that I did 6 years ago. Excellent and solidly within its drinking window.

    August 31, 2019 - 1st of 3 bottles. No formal TN, but the wine shows notes of dried apricot, quince, and chalk, drizzled lightly with honey, with racy acidity and a long, mineral-laden finish. Delicious. Drink now through 2030+.

    August 16, 2019 - First bottle of this 2010 and I like it. There is toastiness (though certainly not oak), it reminds me vintage champagne and sauternes

    August 10, 2019 - I have become a bit confused as to what this ought to taste like when it is not prem'oxed because of my 2009s which I think clearly are. But this, tasted over two days now, resembles it a lot, showing bergamot, wool, caramel, and spicy apricots in the nose. But the intensity, liveliness, and acidity in this 2010 is simply great, so I have decided that this cannot be prem'oxed (or, if it is, that I prefer my Huets prem'oxed). Which then leaves the question about the 2009s - is that simply how Clos Bourg sec tastes in middle age when it is from a lower acidity vintage? I don't know. Anyway, this 2010 is surely very tasty.

    August 9, 2019 - I think this might have been my WOTN (perhaps because the fortified which are great were just a bit more intense). This had a lovely balance of power and acidity and a bit of a full mouth full without feeling overpowering. A red wine drinkers white wine as it were.

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec) Residual sugar 9 g/l, alcohol 13.5%. This is much more substantial than Le Haut Lieu, which seemed rather more pretty on the nose. Instead there is polished limestone substance here. There follows a lovely palate, forceful, and the acidity seems brighter even though the figures suggest it is very slightly lower. Lovely brightness to the fruit overall. This is a lovely wine, just brimming with potential.
