Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec 'Clos du Bourg' 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

This 6-hectare "Clos", surrounded by stone walls, is located on the first slopes above the church in Vouvray. In the 7th century, this was a fiefdom owned by the Saint Martin collegiate church in Tours. The rather thin soil, only about one metre in depth, lies in direct contact with the non-active limestone. Le Clos du Bourg produces a powerful and well-structured wine.

The 2010 Clos du Bourg Sec is another absolutely brilliant wine in the making, as it soars from the glass in a blaze of apple, lemon, a touch of pineapple, bee pollen, stunningly complex minerality and a pungent topnote of white flowers. On the palat... John Gilman. A Chenin Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2010 Haut Lieu (Gaston Huet), Domaine le Vouvray Sec le Clos du Bourg 750ml

Loire, FranceDomaine Huet Vouvray Sec Clos du Bourg is a white wine gem from the Loire Valley of France made of 100% Chenin Blanc. Since its founding in 1928, Vouvray's Domaine Hut 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 Hut believed this to be the greatest of all Vouvray vineyards, with the Premire Cte'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 scored it 92 points and John Gilman just rated it an amazing 96+ points! This is a very special wine, with only 250 cases imported. Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec Clos du Bourg 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.Enjoy Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec Clos du Bourg over the next 7-8 years with roast chicken, grilled sole with a creamy morel sauce, crab salad and goat cheese.

The vineyard is a true "Clos" meaning walled vineyard dating back to the 7th century. The Vouvray has an outstanding expressive with floral notes and touches of honey. Not a bottle to be missed!
