Huët Vouvray Sec le Haut-Lieu 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

96 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...soars from the glass in a stunning aromatic constellation of orange, sweet quince, brilliantly complex minerality, incipient notes of honeycomb, orange zest and dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and very pure and racy, with bottomless depth at the core, laser-like focus, gem-like brilliance and simply stunning length and grip on the complex and so magically elegant finish... Drink between 2012-2030. (Sep/Oct 2013)

A nice start to the evening with it's sheepskin and chalk nose, fine mousse but quite energetic in the mouth, lightly lemon curd and sublte walnutty with good focus and a long citrus finish. Revisited later in the evening showed better with the gentler fizz and offered a more enveloping mouthfeel but still young and tight.
