"Tiny berry- and desiccated concentration rather than botrytis characterize even the 2009 Vouvray Moelleux Clos du Bourg Moelleux 1er Trie. This evinces an as yet unresolved tension between fresh citrus, chalk, and alkali on the one hand, and honey, caramel, and nut paste on the other. For all of its ripeness, there is a sense of textural firmness underlying the palate impression here. Marzipan, singed vanilla cookies, and suggestions of both peach and strawberry preserves enhance the wine’s confectionary aura, and despite its manifestly good strong acidity by vintage standards, the nearly 100 grams of residual sugar present here certainly result in a dominating youthful sweetness in its formidably long finish. If you want this to balance on its own (i.e. not in a dessert wine capacity) then I would be prepared to wait more than a decade, and the wine no doubt has at least three in it. Pinguet says this reminds him of the 1989 1er trie bottlings at the same stage."

2009 Champalou Vouvray Les Tries

"The selectively-picked, botrytized 2009 Vouvray Trie de Vendange smells of pear drops, quince preserves, and over-ripe melons, all of which play drippingly and sweetly on the palate, tinged with cinnamon, salt, and butterscotch. This confectionary yet elegant wine might well gain definition in the short run and should certainly stand up to 15 or more years of cellaring. "
