Huet Le Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec 2017


Region: Vouvray, Loire Valley

Domaine Huet was established in 1928 and has been farmed biodynamically since 1990. Winemaker Jean-Bernard Barthomé classifies the complicated 2016 vintage as ‘exceptional’ as frost reduced yields by 50% but the harvest conditions were remarkably dry. As a result, Huet produced wines at all levels of sweetness from Sec to Première Trie. The 2016s complete an unprecedented trio of great vintages – following the classical and fresh 2014s and the powerful 2015s.

‘All the wines are very delicate, elegant, pure and superbly balanced expressions of their specific terroirs,’ writes Wine Advocate who gave the wines massive ratings along with Wine Spectator.

Tasting notes:
‘The 2015 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec displays a well defined and complex bouquet of ripe and concentrated fruits intertwined with chalky flavors. Dense and elegant on the palate, with a mouth-filling fruit and a perfect sweetness that counterbalances the raciness and firm mineral structure, this is a finesse-full and powerful Chenin with lots of salt and tension. A gorgeous, precise and vivacious wine with great aging potential.’ – Wine Advocate, 95/100
