This is gorgeous with notes of ginger orange clementine white peach and green fig all bouncing off one another but working harmoniously through the richly detailed finish. A lingering green tea note hangs on for added length as this puts on weight with air. Drink now through 2025. -JM

Pungent candied citrus rind smoky black tea iris quince preserves and a distinctly alkaline note inform the strikingly intense nose of the Huet 2009 Vouvray Moelleux Le Mont 1er Trie. This elixir of close to 100 grams residual sweetness makes the corresponding "regular" moelleux taste like demi-sec alongside. It boasts an extraordinary mineral presence for a wine so rich viscous and honeyed with saline smoky and alkaline elements all offering counterpoint and tightly-wound (or should that be "fast flowing"?) springs of fresh citrus convey energy and refreshment also uncommon in a wine of this ripeness. Here too is the sense of levity that in the best instances accrues to wine from air-dried subtly desiccated fruit. Expect this seamless beauty to have a glorious future of three or more decades. --- David Schildknecht
