Huet Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux Premiere Trie 1989  (#332664)

Dessert Wine from Vouvray, Loire, France

[ 98 points Stephan Reinhardt (Wine Advocate): From a 'quintessential Chenin Blanc year' (Michael Broadbent), the luminously orange-golden 1989 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux Première Trie displays a beautifully clear and intense yet not loud, nobly elegant and perfectly balanced raisin fruit with precise aromas of dried apricots and ripe peaches intertwined with subtly spicy, mineral and chalky notes on the nose. Sweet and superbly harmonious on the highly elegant, silky textured and well concentrated palate, this full-bodied, gorgeously fruit-concentrated and animated Chenin from the first picking of dried berries has a perfect, sensual flow and reveals an incredible generosity, finesse and delicacy. This is a gorgeously balanced sweet wine with an intriguing concentration of fruit and finesse. Great to drink on its own for a lifetime or with foie gras or lobster. According to Noël Pinguet, there was no botrytis in 1989, 'the berries were dried on the vines in a vintage that is the best I have ever made and stands alongside with 1947.' Drink: 2015-2090.
