About

93

"Pure and expressive, with cardamom and verbena notes framing the core of yellow apple and quince fruit. Electric acidity fuels the flavors, but this remains a bit intense. The appeal comes through, but this is not fully open yet. Best from 2021 through 2031. 1,400 cases made. — AZ"

92 Stephan Reinhardt - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2018 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec is the only dry Chenin produced at Huet that year. Tasted in May 2019, the Clos du Bourg opens with a delicate nose of white fruit and mirabelle plums, along with chalky and very fine sur-lie notes. The palate is intense, round and fruity but filigreed in its structure and persistent in its mineral grip and stimulating salinity. The yeasty texture gives this 13.5% alcohol Chenin a fine structure and mouthfeel. It's not very long or complex, but it's charming and pleasant to drink even young."

Product Description:

"Gaston Huët believed this to be the greatest of all 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. Clos du Bourg is often the richest and most powerful wine in the lineup." - Importer
