From a praised vintage, Huet's golden colored 1989 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux displays a very clear, subtle and lovely delicate bouquet of ripe, yellow-fleshed fruits (peaches, pineapples, raisins) along with a delicious earthy/chalky background. Round, rather semi-sweet and very delicate on the palate, this elegant and balanced Chenin reveals a great finesse, vitality and lingering salinity. Medium-bodied but intense and fine, this wine is lifted by its delicate and ludic acidity, whereas the tannins are slightly austere in the beginning but delicate after aeration. The finish is stimulating in its finesse and tender grip. This is an excellent wine to be enjoyed over the next 30+ years. - Stephan Reinhardt
