Scents of freesia pink grapefruit and blood orange anticipate the combination of exotic richness with luscious citricity (despite its analytically modest acidity) that characterize the palate performance of Foreau's 2009 Vouvray Demi-Sec. For all of its superficial sense of richness body and high-glycerin this displays not just the aforementioned potential for some refreshment but also an underlying sense of restraint and chalky alkaline minerality. Foreau thinks this is like a stallion being held back at the starting gate and that when the full range of 2009 richness and complexity is unbridled there will be a much more impressive show. Perhaps - but I find it pretty impressive in its way already and at the demi-sec level there is ample precedent chez Foreau for wine that can be worth following for 15-20 years. --- David Schildknecht
