2020 Domaine Huet Vouvray Moelleux 'Haut Lieu' Premiere Trie Loire
Winemaker Notes: This wine has a pale yellow color. The nose is dominated by aromas of mango, papaya and wax. The palate is silky with a well-integrated acidity and flavors of exotic fruit with notes of plum. Ends with a smooth finish.
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The citrus-colored sample of the 2020 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux Première Trie still shows a very fine CO2 perlage in the glass that opens with clear and concentrated but also lush fruit and floral and chalky aromas, with lemon confit and fig mustard. Very elegant and even playful on the palate, with finely vivacious acidity, this full-bodied, silky and salty-piquant Haut-Lieu is beautiful in its terroir expression that favors a fruitier, fresher and more elegant style that is impossible not to like. Some of our readers might find it too vivacious and salty (while looking for hedonistic sweet wines), but as a critic, I am totally fine with this style. The aging potential should be great."
Wine Spectator - "This lovely wine elegantly layers lots of complexity with green melon, yellow fig and quince paste notes, underscored with ginger, honeysuckle, chamomile and marzipan elements. Complex, showcasing both power and grace. Drink now through 2036."
