    I’ve always enjoyed the wines from Domaine Huët. This latest bottling from them proves to be no exception. Aromas of lemon zest, candied peaches, and tangerines play with aromas of stones, wool, sweet florals, and straw. On the palate, ripe stone and orchard fruit flavors are accompanied by stone minerality, straw, Meyer lemon, and lemon curd. A lifted acidity gives freshness without taking away from the lovely, weightier texture. It has similar sweetness to a German spätlese Riesling. A great choice with various cheeses, butternut squash soup, or baked ham.

    This wine was a total shocker for me. I always prefer the Haut Lieu Sec but, this Demi-Sec is a stunner! Orange marmalade, peach, and the right hint of citrus make this wine elegantly balanced. The slight bit of honey on the finish is not cloying and actually makes it even more interesting. A perfect cellar candidate! It will be interesting to see where this one goes with some years under its belt. At this price, I daresay it is even a good value.
