Huet Clos du Bourg Vouvray Loire (Demi-Sec) 1994

What to expect from this bottle? It cost all of $11 way back when purchased. I kept this just to see a wine change its color to amber. And amber it is! The color is somewhere between brown and orange with it shading toward orange. The nose and palate are the same: creme brulee, slight orange, caramel and dried apricot .... and then itís gone. No real fruit to speak of; no real finish either. The acidity is non-existent. Itís a wine of intellectual curiosity, but little else at this time. Yet, it was fun to try. 12% alc. With shrimp salad loaded with Old Bay. The pairing was better than expected with the wine as a foil to the spices in the salad. 06.13.18. Recommended with reservations.
