Sipping Fine Wine Delectable Pro

Medium lemon color with aromas of fresh tropical fruits, citrus and honey nuts. On the palate flavors of peach and pineapple with lime citrus, lively acidity, good balance with fruit and a touch of sweetness on the medium off-dry finish.

Dense and creamy showing weight and concentration. Candied lemon peel, ripe honey-crisp apples, with hints of butterscotch and chalky. Off-dry in style, with apple cider and honey note on the tongue. Lingering finish with pretty acidity. A classic example from a classic producer. 94

On my fourth experiment with this winery for 2019-20. This is my favorite so far, other vineyards were good but a little sweet. This has perfect balance at this early stage Parker 96 review as follows. The 2020 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec is clear, pure, subtle, deep and fresh, with highly refined chalky/sandy lemon aromas. Rich and intense yet silky textured and refined on the concentrated palate, this is a juicy, highly elegant, perfectly balanced, persistently salty and mouth-salivating Haut-Lieu with very fine tannins and a long, firm and pretty powerful but elegant and complex finish. Still more stringent than the Le Mont Demi-Sec in the beginning, but after aeration, this is not just a greatly finessed Chenin but one of the finest Haut-Lieu's I have tasted from Huet. Tasted as a tank sample in April 2021.
