DOMAINE HUET "CLOS DU BOURG" VOUVRAY SEC

(Loire Valley, France)

Gaston Huet believed the Clos du Bourg to be the greatest of all of his Vouvray vineyards. With the Première Côte’s shallowest, stoniest soils, its wines often synthesize Le Mont’s intense minerality with Le Haut-Lieu’s
generous texture. I can’t speak highly enough of this wine. The nose is expressive with notes of slate, honey, warm apple crisp, and honeysuckle. The honeyed and apple notes work beautifully to create an interesting and complex nose that changes as the wine warms in the glass. On the palate the wine shows a nice high acid balanced by a kiss of sweetness and a richness that is hard to find. Flavors in the mouth are similar to what we found on the nose, apple, honey, white flowers, with the addition of some nice tart lemon. This wine would be fabulous paired with pork and roasted apples, or roasted chicken and vegetables. Hands down one of my favorite wines in the store, and a great showing from this classic Vouvray producer.
