Huët Vouvray Moëlleux le Mont 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

95+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The 2009 Le Mont Moelleux claims to have 12.5 percent alcohol, but it too could be just a touch riper than that. But the wine is a marvel, with an ethereal quality that is hauntingly beautiful and completely rare in such a full-bodied wine. The brilliant nose soars from the glass in a blaze of sweet grapefruit, oranges, bee pollen, spring flowers, pure pineapple and absolutely stunning minerality. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied, pure and very transparent, with brisk acids, great focus and stunning length and grip on the dancing finish. There is very, very little signs of botrytis here and I would strongly suspect that this is a wine that has attained this magical style from passerillage¸ rather than noble rot. If there is any botrytis here, it is a very, very small amount of unbelievably clean botrytis. A great, great wine. 2020-2100. (Nov 2010)
