Juicy in feel, with an intense beam of glazed peach, dried apricot,fresh ginger and heather honey notes, backed by baked mirabelleplum accents and a flash of almond cream on the long, rich finish.A wonderful balancing act, keeping the exotic fruit and sweetnessfresh and delineated. Best from 2020 through 2035.

The 2016 Vouvray "Le Mont" Moelleux Première Trie from Domaine Huët is a beautiful wine in the making, with marvelous complexity and honeyed purity evident on both the nose and palate. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a beautifully glazed blend of sweet quince, guava, pineapple, honeycomb, orange zest, a touch of chalky soil and a topnote of citrus blossoms. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, zesty and beautifully balanced, with a deeper-pitched profile than the regular Moelleux from botrytis, lovely framing acids, a fine core and a very long, complex and beautifully balanced finish. This does not have the concentrated acidity of some highly glazed vintages, but the structure here is just fine for carrying the wine fifty or sixty years down the road. Lovely juice. 2017-2075.
