Drinking: Huet 2002 Vouvray Petillant Brut
I decided to open something festive and bubbly last evening: Huet 2002 Vouvray Petillant Brut. This wine is everything a sparkling wine should be and so much more. It was a medium yellow color with toasty, biscuity, appley aromas. It was bright and elegant with great depth, just a brilliant, stunning wine. This is the third time I have tried this vintage over the last couple of years and each time I enjoy it more and more. For the price (about $40), this outshines many champagnes costing twice as much. I am going to have to invest in a couple of bottles to cellar for a longer period.
