Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec Haut-Lieu is a white wine gem from the Loire Valley of France made of 100% Chenin Blanc. Since its founding in 1928, Vouvray's Domaine Huët has been the standard-bearer for great, ageworthy Chenin Blanc. And to this day, year after year, the estate produces some of the world's most compelling white wines. Clos du Bourg is the name of the 6-hectare vineyard in the Vouvray appellation of the Loire wine region. Gaston Huët believed this to be the greatest of all Vouvray vineyards, with the Première Côte's shallowest, stoniest soils. This is a beautiful example of the appellation and an ideal wine to enjoy with food, showing nice minerality and intense fruit. Wine Spectator has rated every vintage since 2007 at 90 points or above! This is a very special wine, with only 2000 cases produced.
Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec Haut-Lieu is soft yellow-green in color with bright acidity. It is medium in body with an aromatic nose of white peach, melon, almond and mineral notes. The wine offers a lush texture with bold flavors of peaches, green apples, pears, ginger and marzipan. It is clean and refreshing with good length on the finish.
