Domaine du Clos Naudin (Philippe Foreau), Vouvray Moelleux Réserve 1989


Imported by Vieux Vins, Northford CT; shipped by Reid Wines, Bristol UK.

Opalescent winks of yellow-gold-emerald-amber and giving off enough light to dilate your pupils.  Satin bath of richness and for all his incandescent mass it’s his sleek, almost sheer shape that is most scintillating.  Vine smoke from ancient hills, your grandmother’s gingerbread, a pepperiness like Sicilian olive oil… there is seemingly no end to all the intimations given off by a botrytized wine like this.  A Vouvray for the many years to come, still only halfway between youthfulness and maturity.  Now – 2040+.
