    October 1, 2017 - Full yellow. Pure honey on the nose. Off dry entry with apple and citrus, beautiful texture and weight, great acidity, and a ton of finishing soil that always seems to distinguish Clos du Bourg. Great showing! This seems to have gained structure over time and now has a thrilling counterpoint of sweet fruit balanced by cleansing acidity.

    September 22, 2017 - Ripe peach, honey, minerals, and some flowers on the nose. Apple, melon, honey, and citrus flavors on the palate. Really nice balance between the acidity and sweetness. Beautiful, long finish.

    September 22, 2017 - Decanted for about an hour and served just below cellar temps. There is tropical notes and mineral on the nose. The palate is crisp and balanced with notes of lemon and burnt sugar. I enjoy the demi-sec because it is subtly sweet. Very enjoyable.

    July 28, 2017 - Full yellow. Typical pear and citrus. Medium weight, off dry, excellent soil, good acidity. Just suffers from a dip in intensity mid-palate, but otherwise perfectly sound.

    April 22, 2017 - Tasted blind. Enchanting nose full of minerals, fresh peaches, and sweet perfume. I really like this fresh nose. Tropical fruit up front with stunning clarity and balance throughout. Hints of Fruity Pebbles. Superb depth. When a wine is complex enough to challenge your ability to describe it, you know it's really good stuff.

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec) This is pleasing, not so expressive, rather it is gentle, subdued, perhaps a touch closed on the nose. It has a lovely presence on the palate though, textured and delineated, with a good weight, structure and substance. The character and interest will come with time in bottle. Lots of potential here I think.
