2015 Huët Le Clos du Bourg Vouvray Moulleux Première Trie
Concentrated, with a core of intense Jonagold apple, glazed Bosc pear, ginger cream and dried quince flavors, carried by filigreed acidity and backed by green tea, verbena, chamomile and persimmon notes. The finish is extremely long. Best from 2018 through 2040. 300 cases imported. (JM)
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dark golden-colored 2015 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux Première Trie is super ripe and intense, yet precise and mineral on the nose where orange and dusty flavors are displayed along with some caramel flavors. Intense and juicy, with a concentrated and sweet, yet vital and elegant fruit, this Chenin has vibrant acidity. This is a full-bodied, well structured, persistent and powerful Chenin with a sweetness that is almost fully integrated. The finish is enormously vivacious and firm, and reveals a stimulating minerality.
Already spicy and honeyed on the nose. Jaw-dropping concentration allied to incredible freshness, with complex fruit flavours ranging from quince through pear to mandarin. Succulent, rich and so long. 19/20 points. Drink 2019-2040. (JH)
