Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec 'Clos du Bourg' 2010
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.
