Huet Moelleux 1990

Domaine Huet, Vouvray, Le Haut-Lieu, 1ere Trie, Moelleux 1990 This wine has developed a beautiful tawny color over almost 2 decades. The nose smells of toffee, caramel and raisins. The mouth is an absolute explosions of fresh oranges covered in caramel – really. I know that sounds hyperbolic, but the freshness of the fruit has been retained on the palate with the added complexity of botrytis and time.  The acidity gives the balance on the other side of the fulcrum making an ideal experience. Mis a Buissee a Vouvray 12% priceless gift from one of the students. Domaine Huet
