Domaine Huet Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux Première Trie 2016

When vintage conditions dictate, Domaine Huet produce a Vouvray Moelleux Première Trie. This sweeter expression of the Chenin Blanc is made from a berry-by-berry selection of the very ripest (often botrytis affected) grapes, but even at this level, the balance is dumbfounding and these mouth-watering, racy, transparent wines are simply outstanding. This Clos du Bourg 1ère Trie is a stunning creation which combines dried tropical fruit aromas with sweet spice. There is such complexity here with botrytis spice, exotic fruit and stewed rhubarb providing a fullness that is somehow piercingly lean at the same time. The intense sweetness is complemented by an electric acidity and enormous concentration. This wine will live for 40+ years.
