Offers a big, broad feel, with layers of glazed pear, apple and peach falling over each other, backed by fresh ginger, honeysuckle and quince notes. Everything pulls together through the finish, with green tea accents and racy minerality providing the foil. Drink now through 2035. 300 cases imported. –JM

The 2015 Le Haut Lieu Moelleux from Domaine Huët is a superb wine in the making, with its glaze of botrytis beautifully managed and the wine showing excellent potential on both the nose and palate. The bouquet offers up a pure and complex mélange of sweet quince, orange, honey, just a whisper of lanolin, beautiful chalky soil tones, a whisper of the leather to come, citrus zest and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, complex and beautifully balanced, with bright acids, a lovely core and outstanding focus and grip on the very long, refined and nicely glazed finish. This will be all apricot, honey and tea leaves in the future, but it is so good to drink out of the blocks, that it is going to be hard not to open bottles in its more exotic youthful period. (Drink between 2016-2085)

Powerful but full of finesse and elegance, this is a piquant and stimulating sweet wine with grip and tension. However, I find it rather less complex than the Sec and the Demi-Sec. - Stephan Reinhardt

Golden yellow at the core that stays strong through to the rim. Rich and inviting aromas of sweet quince, cherry blossom, fresh lemon curd and yellow apple followed by white pepper, acacia flower and lychee. The palate has wonderful zest to it with a piquancy of sweetness and acidity that keeps the mouth wanting more. Flavors of meyer lemon and jasmine lead into a round and warm finish. This is drinking well today but ideally should be given at least 3-5 years and enjoyed the following 15-20.
