2005 Huët "Le Clos de Bourg" 1er Trie Vouvray Moelleux (375ml)

SKU #1163254 96 points Wine Spectator

 Offers a panoply of rich fig, quince, persimmon, date and orange peel flavors, but stays bright and lithe, with a lacy texture and bright acidity. Very alluring, with great buried minerality offset by papaya on the very long, finely beaded finish. Drink now through 2028.  (6/2008)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The 2005 Vouvray Moelleux Clos du Bourg Moelleux 1er Trie announces its advanced botrytization with high-toned honey, flowers, herbal distillate, framboise, and quince preserves, but comes onto the palate with an almost pulpy, juicy sense of vivid fresh citrus, accented by bitter-sweet Seville orange rind and brown spices. Clear and pure, with wafting inner-mouth florality and a persistent alternation of invigorating freshness with honeyed nobility of botrytis, pit fruit and berry preserves with fresh citrus, this is the longest-finishing wine here today, and a great candidate for enjoying anywhere between seven and twenty-some years of age. (DS)  (8/2007)
