Quince and white peach preserves fill the nose caressingly coat the palate from Huet's 2009 Vouvray Moelleux Clos du Bourg, which displays a combination of lift and delicacy with its honeyed richness that none of the present collection tasted up until this point approach. Here are brightness, energy, and efficacious acids driving the quince, pineapple, seamlessly forward. Here, too are mineral nuances too often missing from the sweet Vouvray and Montlouis of this vintage. Expect this superbly persistent bottling to be worth following for a quarter century. DAVID SCHILDKNECHT, Wine Advocate

Residual sugar 55.5 g/l, alcohol 12.5%, and the total acidity is 5.12 g/l. Very light and elegant style on the nose here, refined and reserved. A very seductive style on the palate though, supple and with a very polished yellow plum and stone fruit character. Lightly honeyed, very mellifluous but in a light, ethereal fashion rather than anything hedonistic. Very appealing and showing only its baby fat at the moment. There should be fine development here though as the balance and depth of structure and grip is delightful. CHRIS KISSACK, The Wine Doctor
