Huet Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux Première Trie 2020

$210.00

Pre-Arrival – Due Mid January

 

“The intensely yellow colored 2020 Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux Première Trie is highly concentrated and complex on the nose that exhibits candied lemon zest and chutney aromas along with calcareous and walnut notes. Sweet (really sweet!) yet refined and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, rich and generous yet piquant and firmly structured, greatly tensioned and salty 1ère Trie with pineapple flavors on the finely tannic and energetic, very sustainable finish. The 2020 has great aging potential, and I would never serve it too young. When will it really start to show its best? I don’t know, but you can’t go wrong to check the wine again after 10 years.!” 97-98 points, Stephan Reinhardt, The Wine Advocate

“The residual sugar in this cuvée is close to 90 g/l, and the fruit was concentrated entirely by passerillage, this being a vintage marked by very dry weather during the harvest period. The nose has a sense of polish, with sweetly grilled peach, apricot stone and honeysuckle, communicating a great purity. This is followed by a palate of fabulous density, with a seamless and polished core of fruit from the outset. Its velvety substance is filled with creamed orchard fruits, apricots and vanilla flower, but its density is nicely countered by its fresh acidity. A wine of great purity, fine acid lift and excellent potential, this is a classically styled cuvée with decades ahead of it.” 96 points, Chris Kissack, The Wine Doctor
