What's Wrong with My Vouvray?

omotosando | Jun 5, 2011 11:19 PM

Recently, the New York Times had an article about how great Vouvray is and what a terrific value.

So I picked up a bottle of what Eric Asimov rated as his top pick -- the 2009

Huet Clos du Bourg, which he said "was stunning in its complex, intense flavors of lemon, honeysuckle, mint and minerals."

I hated it -- I tasted no complexity, only lemon. Found it very unbalanced and unpleasant. Asimov also did mention the wine was "very young." So is something wrong with my palate or is the wine just too young?
