2011 Domaine Huët "Clos du Bourg" Vouvray Sec

SKU #1265348 92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark Domaine Huët’s 2011 Sec from the Clos du Bourg is the pick of the litter amongst these three vineyards in 2011 at this level of sweetness, offering up a pure and classic nose of lemon, tangerine, lovely minerality, a touch of honey, lemon zest and a gentle note of lanolin in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied and very precise in its focus, with solid mid-palate depth, outstanding mineral drive (particularly for the vintage) and a very long and complex finish. This does not have the usual grip of a top vintage of Clos du Bourg, but it does have all the complexity that this great vineyard is justly famous for and the wine should drink well for at least a dozen years. Fine juice and a Herculean effort for the vintage. Inner quote mark (5/2013)

Outer quote mark The clues here were that it smelled as though it was going to be sweet but on the palate was dry with notably high acidity and honey and toast aromas. It was much firmer, more concentrated and presumably longer lasting than the average commercial Vouvray. 17/20 points (JR) Inner quote mark (2/2013)
