Today's Wine Tasting Note

© Copyright 1999 by Robin Garr. All rights reserved.

Huet Gaston Huet 1996 Clos du Bourg Vouvray Demi-Sec ($20.99)
Clear, bright straw color, with delicate but delicious scents that evoke dried fruit, hard candies and honey. Full and ripe flavor, fresh-fruit sweetness definitely present but muted by steely acidity; earthy notes and lingering nuances that mirror the nose. Delicious wine; will certainly benefit from aging, but it's hard to keep from gulping it now. U.S. importer: Europvin USA, Emeryville, Calif. (Aug. 4, 1999)

FOOD MATCH: Served as an after-dinner sipper but goes nicely with a taste of sharp cheese.

All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I purchase all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
