This has cut and precision despite the off-dry feel with delicious pear fig and quince fruit flavors that glide through the lengthy heather-tinged finish. Should age nicely. Drink now through 2016. -JM

According to Richard Kelley, the conditions during the growing season were "generally good," however, "the 2009 harvest was a complicated one. The 15 day flowering period meant that ripening was not homogenous and Huet needed to send the pickers out three times, even for the sec and demi-sec, in order to harvest at the optimum time." The resulting wines, however, are among the best of the decade, and Huet's 2009 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Sec gives an excellent example. Citrus-yellow in color and with tropical fruit and brioche aromas on the clear and concentrated nose, this is a full-bodied, round and slightly sweet, very intense and elegant Chenin with a juicy texture and a long, impressively aromatic finish that reveals a very delicate grip and a stimulating salinity. This stylish wine drinks lovely already today, but should be decanted. Its aging potential should be very good. - Stephan Reinhardt
