Where to start? How about magnificent? How about exceptional? How about demonstrably brilliant?
Huet is expensive, it’s a splurge for us, but every year Marquis on Davie gets a truckload and we pick up a few for the cellar. We drank this too soon. We couldn’t resist. Yet it didn’t disappoint, not one iota.
The balanced fruit, a luscious caramel, sweetish without cloying, delicate but not lightweight, it defies description. Three times as much as we like to pay for wine but worth every cent.
Price: Around $60 at Marquis.
Market Liquidity: A Christmas miracle.
