Description

The 2018 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux Première Trie is deep and intense yet pure and chalky on the distinctive, slightly flinty and yeasty nougat-scented nose. Vital, vibrantly fresh and tight yet fine and pure on the playful palate, this is an intense, sweet and impressively rich Chenin with tension, salt and finesse as well as fine but grippy tannins. This is an exciting Haut-Lieu that is already dangerously ready to drink but will become even more complex and dimensioned with bottle age. Definitely the Haut-Lieu of the vintage! Tasted in May 2019.

Score: 94 points -- Stephan Reinhardt, Robertparker.com, May 2019

***

Domaine Huet is arguably Vouvray's most famous and greatest Domaine and is really, one of the greatest wine estates in the world. So, it might come as a surprise to some to find out that this estate was only founded in 1928 by the Huet family, Victor, and son, Gaston. Today the estate is under new management, but the devotion to the production of world class Chenin based wines remains unchanged. The estate vineyard holdings are composed of three main sites: Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont and Le Clos du Bourg. In 1988 each of these sites was converted biodynamic viticulture. The range and style of wines produced by the estate varies from year to year and each vineyard site produces wines different from one another. These are wines destined for long life in the cellar. They really require at least a decade in the cellar to be fully enjoyed.
