John Gilman, 97 Points 

"The 2016 Vouvray "Cuvée Constance" from Domaine Huët is a brilliant wine in the making, but it is still very early days for this legend in the making. The bouquet is deep and pure, wafting from the glass in a blend of pineapple, tangerine, sweet quince, honey, a bit of citrus peel, hints of the leather to come, dried flowers, chalky dust and incipient smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied and bottomless at the core, with outstanding acidity and grip, laser-like focus and a very, very long, nascently complex finish. This is very easy to drink already, but in reality, it is only showing a small slice of its inherent complexity and one should try to exercise patience and let it develop some of its secondary layers with bottle age. Nectar of the gods! 2025-2100." 

Wine Spectator, 96 Points

"Intense acidity cuts through the rich and plump profile of this sweet version, creating harmony and focus. Shows a wide range of flavors, with golden raisin, fig and flambéed pear notes on the palate, delivering incredible purity. Very lush and expressive, yet elegant. Long finish." 

Alcohol: 11.5%
