95pts Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate

From the world-renowned house of Huet, widely considered to be the pre-eminent producer of Vouvray, we have the Domaine Huet Clos du Bourg Moelleux Vouvray.

Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "The 2018 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux is ripe and already quite open on the remarkably fine and precise nose where delicate chalky notes intermix with yeasty aromas of ripe apples and even very fine flinty hints. On the palate, this is a sweet, lush, salty-piquant and refined but tightly woven Chenin with structure, remarkable finesse, tickling salinity and serious but fine tannins, as if it was a Pinot Noir. Filigreed and feminine on the tongue, the 2018 develops a long, tensioned, tightly woven and stimulatingly salty finish. Great class and aging potential. Drink 2020-2065.

Huet’s 2018 vintage brought just one single Vouvray Sec, and this is the Clos du Bourg. Rarely have I tasted Clos du Bourgs with such a perfect balance of ripe fruit and the most delicate finesse, especially when it comes to the sweet wines, of which the Première Trie might be the finest Huet wine of the vintage. Oh, these wines are so gentle and gracious! Doubtlessly, these are concentrated yet pure and mineral wines of outstanding class and finesse. I can only recommend cellaring as much of this as you and yours can drink. Although the 2018s already taste beautiful, these wines can be cellared for decades. There is no lack of freshness nor of purity, and the body weight is perfectly balanced." May 2019

Winery: "One can taste the fruity clay of the Haut-Lieu, the chiseled mineral flint of the Mont and the roundness of limestone Clos du Bourg."

Importer: "Huet is THE estate of Vouvray. If I had to pick only one white wine producer in our entire book it would be Huet."
