1976 Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux (92 pts) @domainehuet ℹ️ This wine is 💯 Chenin Blanc from the Clos did Bourg vineyard in the Vouvray appellation of the Loire Valley, France. Gaston Huët believed Clos du Bourg to be the greatest of all Vouvray vineyards due to having the poorest, shallowest, and stoniest soils. 👁 Medium amber color. 👃 Medium+ intensity on the nose. Aromas of dried apricot, dried pear, Mirabelle plum, bruised apple, peach skin, dried flowers, and honey. 👄 The wine is medium-sweet, high acidity, medium alcohol (13%), and full body. Mouth coating on attack and quickly cut by the acidity keeping the wine from being cloying. A medium length finish of dried orchard fruit and honey. 🔔 Huet's wines can age for decades, as seen by this example. A lovely aged sweet wine that wasn't over the top in sweetness because it cut with firm acidity. Overall good balance, but I find a larger influence of Botrytis leads to even more complex aged sweet wines. 🙏 Thank you, @clayfu .wine for bringing a fun aged wine to wrap up the night. #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #cheninblanc #vouvray #huet #domainehuet #moelleux
