Subtle and alluring scents of musk white truffle iris lily and narcissus mingle with quince on the nose of Foreau's 2008 Vouvray Demi-Sec. Lush and glossy (13% alcohol incidentally) and lusciously loaded with quince kumquat and grapefruit it carries hints of coriander zesty sizzle rhubarb tartness and persistent truffle and floral perfume into an uncannily buoyant soaring finish. The balance here is so deft you can practically consider the wine dry and its scent from the open glass alone is worth the asking price. Expect it to be worth following for at least two richly rewarding decades. --- David Schildknecht
