    May 9, 2020 - Golden yellow
    Very light on the nose, yellow fruit, apples and some minerality.
    On the palate high acidity,a bit tart. A bit citrus but not much taste.

    So much less than tha last bottle, I guess it in a down phase right now.

    Wait a couple of year for the next?

    October 26, 2019 - Frustratingly, I didn't read my tasting note from last summer before popping open a bottle of this again, and had a worst experience than last time. This was very tart, with only shades of yellow apple, peach, and some lanolin poking through a mostly puckering palette. Not enjoying our first glasses, we decided to close it up and try the second night. It was a bit better, but I think I'm of the opinion that Huet's Vouvrays don't begin to show why people love them so much until they're at least 7-10 years old.

    April 18, 2019 - Medium hay in color, lovely rocky Chenin nose, great intensity of pure, clean fruit, very fresh and crisp, with nice notes of saline tartness and granite minerality that dominates the finish. Very nice.

    March 31, 2019 - bright golden, hint of viscosity
    on the nose; yellow ripe apples, wet wool, beeswax, sweet nutty notes, mineral
    on the palate; high acidity, a bit oily, marzipan, a tiny bit sticky - like grape. round, well balanced and an very enjoyable

    Drinks beautiful now, on the other hand - have never tasted an old chenin....

    September 8, 2018 - Quite good... pale gold, with a nose of lemons and honey, wax, perhaps just a hint of cloves. Off-dry and richly flavorful with a ripe, fruity sweetness that perhaps is a notch over my ideal level of r.s., melon and limestone on the long palate.
