Huët Vouvray Demi-Sec le Haut-Lieu 1996

Winemaker's Notes:

This 1996 Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux is a mesh of orange, lime peel, straw,<br/>brioche and hay even; on the palate the wine's 67 grams of residual sugar is<br/>sublimely integrated, balanced out by scintillatingly pure, another dead-ringer<br/>for Sauternes surely; one of the Loire's very best without a doubt. Dazzling.<br/> <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)

With deeper soils than at neighboring "Clos du Bourg," vines resting in Le Mont's greenish-clay Perruches soils must dive deeper to hit limestone. These are energetic, long lived wines."Première Trie refers to a highly-tuned selection of nobly-rotten fruit from any number of passes though the vines. Precise, defined, smoky, lemon thyme slathered in honey butter. nose with a well-structured palate. The flavors evolve into musky beeswax that linger on the finish.
