    December 26, 2014 - No notes taken, but really good aperitif - Vouvray often shows very fine complexity and this was no exception

    October 13, 2008 - Visit to Domaine Huet: Quite concentrated and complex nose.
    A serious wine, slightly burnt notes.

    October 2, 2008 - Loire Trip (with stops in Beaujolais and the Cote Chalonnaise); 10/2/2008-10/5/2008: A mousseux, more gassy yet more finely textured than the 01 Petillant, and showing a good clean mix of quince, pear and mirabelle.

    April 21, 2008 - Suprisingly deep gold in colour but was lighter at the bottom of the glass. The nose initially had the slightest sulphur rotten egg which blew off leaving some citrus. There wasn't much yeast or other bread dough on the nose leaving us with the impression that this certainly wasn't champagne. The palate came over as a deep rich white wine that happened to have lots of refreshing bubbles. It was packed with zesty citrus and nice minerality. Not the most complex sparkler, but it was a very good start to an enjoyable evening.

    July 17, 2007 - Somewhat dark yellow colour no doubt a results of age. Decent fizz with a nice but different flavour profile than I'm used to. Dominted by notes of Pain Grille, pear, and sweet apple. We enjoyed this.

    (Domaine Huet Vouvray Pétillant) This has a fairly rich golden colour, and despite the pétillant designation it has quite a coarse bead. This quickly fades, however, leaving just one or two streams of tiny bubbles. There's a good nose, which is classic Chenin Blanc, with a fresh and honeyed (although not sweet), wet wool nose. Bright fruit on the palate, and good freshness. The acidity is prominent. Just a touch bready.
