2005 Huët Le Clos de Bourg Vouvray Demi-Sec

SKU #1207261 93 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark *Top 100 Wines of 2007* Shows very flattering ginger and peach aromas, but tightens up quickly on the palate thanks to its nervy acidity, which keeps the quince, persimmon and marzipan notes in reserve. Superlong finish. Best from 2008 through 2018. Inner quote mark (3/2007)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2005 Vouvray Demi-Sec Clos du Bourg offers fresh orange, quince, and grapefruit zest on the nose, a fine, bitter-sweet inner-mouth florality, and concentration of quince, honey, toasted almond, and citrus, with strongly chalky, stony mineral underpinnings. A glossy, polished feel accentuates the sense of richness, as does, of course, the wine’s discreet residual sweetness. This is no less refined, elegant or potentially ageworthy than its predecessors, but far more exuberant than the Le Mont demi-sec, incorporating a panoply of citrus, flowers, and pit fruits. (DS) Inner quote mark (8/2007)

92 points Wine & Spirits

Outer quote mark This is full with Anjou pear, mandarin orange, red apple and lemon zest flavor wound around intense chalky soil. Drink it now to enjoy the fresh fruit, or wait another ten years for it to develop more complexity and sophistication. Inner quote mark (4/2007)

K&L Notes

Maison Huet is one of the premier producers of Chenin Blanc in the Loire Valley, if not the world. Founded in 1928, the estate now covers 35 hectares, which are divided among three properties: Le Mont, Le Haut-Lieu and Le Clos du Bourg have been farmed biodynamically since 1990. These wines are stunning and are worth being in your cellar. Legends in the making here! Le Clos du Bourg is six-hectare vineyard site completely surrounded by a stone wall and just above the church in Vouvray. The soils here are fairly thin, roughly three feet deep, and layered directly on top of non-active limestone. The resulting wines are loaded with structure and power, with unreal textural sensation, vibrant acidity and a long, long finish.
