“97 pts • Top 100 Wine Discoveries of 2020”

Wine Advocate's "Top 100 Discoveries of 2020"

By David Gettenberg

The 2019 Domaine Huet Vouvray "Clos du Bourg" was just selected among the "Top 100 Wine Discoveries of 2020" by the Wine Advocate.

Akin to Wine Spectator's Top 100 list, Wine Advocate's Top 100 Wine Discoveries does not rank within the list.  Rather, it highlights the best of breed wines reviewed in 2020.

Indeed, Huet's Clos du Bourg is something special.  Burgundy has DRC.  Barolo has Conterno.  And, Vouvray has Domaine Huet.

"Full-bodied, round and fruity on the palate, this is a deep, intense, juicy, silky-textured yet tight, chalky, very complex, sustainably structured and persistently salty-mineral Chenin from old vines that give extra concentration as well as a spectacularly expressive character. This is a great, age-worthy Vouvray with fine tannins and lingering salty tension and finesse. What a finish!... The 2019 is a duty for all Chenin aficionados!"  Wine Advocate

Like a fine Bordeaux, let it breathe for 30 minutes. 

Finesse.  Fruit.  Finish.  All the elements will emerge as you taste one of the finest Vouvrays ever bottled.

The exclusive 6-hectare parcel known as "Clos du Bourg" is considered the Grand Cru of Vouvray.  The Chenin Blanc grapes grown in this clos are without a doubt the most textured, refined, and pure expression of the varietal we've ever enjoyed. 

Even if you are not enjoying it for this Thanksgiving - which would be an ideal pairing - it is an essential white wine to round out your cellar.  It's perfect with cheese, seafood, poultry, and lean meats.  

Enjoy!

“The 2019 is a duty for all Chenin aficionados!”

Wine Advocate • 97 / 100

"The 2019 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec offers a deep, rich yet pure and refined, intensely aromatic, darker-toned nose with aromas of fully ripe stone and tropical fruit intertwined with earthy, chalky and yeasty notes that make up for further finesse and complexity. Full-bodied, round and fruity on the palate, this is a deep, intense, juicy, silky-textured yet tight, chalky, very complex, sustainably structured and persistently salty-mineral Chenin from old vines that give extra concentration as well as a spectacularly expressive character. This is a great, age-worthy Vouvray with fine tannins and lingering salty tension and finesse. What a finish! The 2019 needs a while to gain finesse and even more complexity. The wine served from the bottle that I tasted nine days before was incredibly amazing! The 2019 is a duty for all Chenin aficionados! "
