Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux Première Trie 2017

Domaine Huet's Vouvray Moelleux Première Trie wines are occasionally made in the finest vintages. This sweeter expression 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. With the Le Mont Moelleux Première Trie you are met at first with a smokey, powerful and dense wine that takes a few minutes to unwind. As it opens in the glass you are met with a melange of tarte tatin, spice, vanilla, caramelised grapefruit and barley sugar. That is before a sip is taken. The intensity continues but the balance is the remarkable factor here. It is sweet but it is so clean, fresh and pure that it is almost weightless. Marmalade matches with pineapple, burnt sugar with grapefruit, before a mineral finish. Every piece is in harmony and will be even more astonishing when it is at maturity in 10 years.
