Gaston Huet Vouvray Sec le Clos du Bourg 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Domaine Huet produces many Vouvrays from its rocky and one-yard-in-depth soils. They range from the quite dry to the very sweet. This example is one of the _dry_ ones showing flavors of citrus, light salinity and sweet/tart radish (!). Because the grape varietal here is chenin blanc, there is a touch of natural sweetness on the palate and the finish. Delightful.

The vineyard is a true "Clos" meaning walled vineyard dating back to the 7th century. The Vouvray has an outstanding expressive nose with floral and honey aromas that will captivate you, while underlying minerality will keep you intrigued.

The Huet 2009 Vouvray Sec Clos du Bourg is rich and oily yet at the same time impressively juicy and bright, with fresh lime and grapefruit that almost seem as though they could have been conferred by the addition of Sauvignon. Possessed of a sweet, saline, crustacean reduction-like savor; and a remarkably palpable sense of density, this displays some of the same energy and sizzling intersection of white pepper, citrus oil, and chalk as found in the Le Mont, but here there is more refreshment, refinement, and mineral diversity. It should be worth following for the better part of a decade, if not beyond. Seen superficially, one might have expected the stressful proximity of mother chalk, paucity of fine earth and consequent difficulty to retain stress-relieving water during a warm, dry late summer and autumn to have rendered the balance in Clos du Bourg more problematic, but the opposite is the case, demonstrating both the virtue and mystery of this site.

Dry, but still flattering in feel, with friendly green almond, quince and fig notes carried by a lilting floral hint on the finish. Drink now through 2015. 400 cases imported. Wine Spectator, Web Only - 2010, James Molesworth
