In terms of colour and appearance, the 1943 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux is characterised by a deep and intense amber colour. A truly impressive sight!
In terms of fragrance, this rare drop opens the subtle bouquet of pure sweetness. Aromas of fir honey and pine resin mingle with the sweet scent of nougat and brittle. Paired with notes of dried dates, figs and candied orange zest, an olfactory experience full of depth and complexity is created.
On the palate, the 1943 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux shows its true identity; although it flows into the glass with ease, it surprises the palate with a refreshing effect. Pronounced minerality, fine acidity and hints of orange flesh and mango indicate remarkable ageing potential. It borders on a true miracle to taste a wine of this maturity that still exudes such fascinating youthfulness. Even when enjoyed on its own, it is a fancy experience!
Looking into the culinary cosmos, alternative recommendations to the dishes already mentioned would be harmonious pairings with spicy lamb curry with basmati rice and sultanas, game hen with chestnuts and caramelised cabbage or a ripe Camembert served on freshly toasted walnut bread with homemade pear mustarda. Enjoy this impressive wine to the fullest!
