    May 18, 2019 - Big bubbles! The bouquet changed as the wine breathed, ranging from wax to pear to honeyed elements to citrus, to minerals, etc. Expansive and weighty textures, quite luxurious, backed by tremendous piercing acids and a finish that has no quit. Poised, exquisite! 93-94.

    March 21, 2019 - Stunning. Great balance between creamy and crisp. Apple, light honey, almond, nougat. I could drink this all day long. No hurry on this one. It will evolve for years. But just wonderful now.

    December 24, 2018 - Petillance very restrained on this bottle. Pleasant enough -- chalk and lime with some stone fruit and a little wool. Not my favorite vintage of this cuvee.

    November 27, 2018 - Quite tasty; nose is lovely with green apple, honeysuckle, orange peel, poached quince; palate with nice fruit and pleasant but subtle effervescence; good not great

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant) The wine has a good colour, with some evident richness, and a full pétillance. The nose is fascinating; it is immediately seductive with its rich, toothsome fruit aromas, but this is a fleeting impression on opening the bottle, and the prevailing style is more restrained than this comment suggests. There are notes of honey-drizzled sponge but these co-exist with vibrant, exuberant citrus fruits, even little hints of mango and peach. The character here is so exotic, so characterful, it is small wonder that Noël avoided using a première trie for the dosage, opting for a less rich demi-sec blend instead. I note that there is also a stony firm character to the aromatic fruit as well, though, giving some hint of balance. Rich and seductive in terms of texture, but with a very straight, lean, steel-tinged fruit character, with a good sense of frmness to the fruit. Sappy, restrained, almost a hint of sourness to it at the edge as well, so in the mouth this is certainly less seductive than the nose suggested, also less rich in comparison to some other recent vintages. A fine style.

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant) Residual sugar 8 g/l, acidity 5 g/l, alcohol 12%. This vintage has been dosed with a liqueur made from a blend of demi-sec from the 2001 and 2002 vintages. It has a lovely, grainy fruit quality on the nose. A very fine style on the palate; very pure in character, upright, classic and restrained. Very soft and easy-going pétillance at this stage in the wine's evolution, with a lovely acid backbone, and a minerally, matchsticky reductive character. Fine.
