One of France’s most collectible white wines for $35.99 that you can easily cellar and enjoy over the next 30 to 40 years!
Founded in 1928, Domaine Huet has nearly 100 years of experience. Within that time founder and winemaker Gaston Huet survived as a Prisoner of War for 5 years. He credited his survival to his anticipation of returning to his vineyards in Vouvray. Only a couple years after he returned he produced the 1947 Le Haut-Leux Moelleux Vouvray, which is considered one of the best wines ever made. Named #6 on the list of “100 Greatest Wines Ever Made” from Decanter. Only other white to beat it was the 1921 Chateau d’Yquem.
This bottling of Vouvray is produced from the same vineyard that landed that spot on Decanter’s list, and it is flat out delicious.
Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate 95-96 Points
The 2020 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec is clear, pure, subtle, deep and fresh, with highly refined chalky/sandy lemon aromas. Rich and intense yet silky textured and refined on the concentrated palate, this is a juicy, highly elegant, perfectly balanced, persistently salty and mouth-salivating Haut-Lieu with very fine tannins and a long, firm and pretty powerful but elegant and complex finish. Still more stringent than the Le Mont Demi-Sec in the beginning, but after aeration, this is not just a greatly finessed Chenin but one of the finest Haut-Lieu’s I have tasted from Huet. Tasted as a tank sample in April 2021.
