TASTING NOTES

Huet's deep golden-apricot colored 1997 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux Première Trie opens with a highly delicate, crystalline, clear and aromatic bouquet with herbal and chalky-mineral aromas plus a dash of lemon juice. Pure, straight and fresh on the palate, this Clos du Bourg reveals a marvelous lightness, precision and crystallinity on the palate. It is straight, dense and vertical on the palate, showing great elegance, finesse and balance as well as complexity. The finish is long, full of energy, tension, grip and eternal youth. The fruit is highly delicate and precise here, of remarkable finesse and concentration but drawn with a pencil instead of a felt pen.
