One excellent bottle of the incredibly rare 1924 Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Haut Lieu. Bought in auction from stock direct from the producer. Stored in EuroCave since. Tried a few from the same OWC and tasting superb. Superb fill level as per photo. Lovely handblown bottle, the rim of the bottle top shows imperfections from this process but adds to the experience.
Orange/amber in color with a greenish shimmer, the 1990 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux Première Trie has a super clear, precise, elegant and flinty bouquet of apricot oil and stewed or baked apricots along with some nougat and Turkish honey flavors. Very intense, rich and concentrated on the palate, with a beautifully fine acidity and finesse-full minerality, this is a spectacular moelleux with lightness, great finesse, vitality, length and complexity. The finish is pure and precise and almost endless in its aromatics. Beautifully intense, vital and balanced. A gorgeous wine though not from the 100% perfect bottle.Drinking 2016 -2040
