A very spice-driven wine. Deep golden. Unique aromas of strawberry, as well as notes of cumin and turmeric ­that carry onto the palate, which is unctuous with lots of honey, apricot. Fascinating. 58 grams per liter residual sugar. (Jason Wilson, Vinous, July 2020)

For this sweet wine, balanced with the lanolin tones and oily richness of Huet - can't imagine a better wine of this style. Would pair with a salty terrine or hogs head cheese

The most mineral of Huet's parcels as a Moelleux is absolutely gorgeous for its equipoise. I will hunt more of this elusive quarry down.

2009 Domaine Huet le Mont Vouvray Moelleux. Soft golden hue. Thick, sweet honey and honeysuckle. Almost like a Sauternes. Melon. Superb wine.

Always a treat. Chenin showing its opulent off dry side. A handful of white flowers with nice medium plus finish.
