Domaine Huet Le Mont Moelleux Vouvray Chenin Blanc 1995

$63.99

Wine Advocate, 94+ Points: The yellow-golden colored 1995 Vouvray le Mont Moelleux is super clear and piquant on the spicy/peppery flavored nose with its perfectly ripe and elegant, perfectly balanced fruit. It has the same balance on the palate that exhibits the rich sweetness and the piquant and endlessly salty Le Mont terroir. Except for the Scharzhofberg and other Wiltingen terroirs with red slate, I don't know of any terroir that absorbs the sweetness as much as the Mont. Add alcohol, richness and tannins, more charming stone fruits and autumn instead of spring, and you come closer to Chenin from Vouvray Le Mont terroir than to Riesling from the Saar's greatest terroir. The elegance and balance as well as the vitality and tension are gorgeous here. The further aging potential should be 20, probably even more years. Mind you though, that I didn't pull the best cork. It was black on the top side and really humid inside also on the down side.

Not as sweet as expected, mushrooms, forest floor, highly textured, full bodied with high acidity, yum!

Richly fruited, yet showing plenty of acidic structure. Fresh apple & pear aromatics which follow all the way to the back of the palate. Virtually weightless on the mid palate, but loaded with complex textural notes accenting the sappy-ish fruit. A masterpiece.

Like a whole botanical garden in a glass. Acidity to balance what isn't all that much sweetness.

While this improved much over the course of an hour, I was getting strong burnt hair on both nose and palette. Opened up into earthiness, old mossy wood, and decomposing apples. I much prefer the 2005.

Wonderful wine to finish a meal. Slight Sauternes easy drinking great finish. Good acids that clean your pallet
