Domaine Huët 2009 Cuvée Constance 500ml Chenin Blanc (Vouvray)

Even more concentrated than Huët’s superb 2009 Première Trie, this is outstanding. It has both great concentration and elegance. The wine is touched by botrytis, while retaining freshness. Made from ripe, just shrivelling grapes, this is sweet Vouvray at its magnificent best.  — R.V.   Published 6/1/2011

Domaine Huët 2010 Le Mont Première Trie Moelleux Chenin Blanc (Vouvray)

This will be a wonderful wine. Already, it is fine, with lovely acidity, bright and richly sweet at the same time. Yellow fruits mingle with honey, pear, almonds and the intense sweetness of botrytis.  — R.V.   Published 6/1/2011

Domaine Huët 2006 Clos du Bourg Première Trie Moelleux Chenin Blanc (Vouvray)

Première Trie means a wine from the first selection of grapes during harvest. This wine, now firmly closed up, as is expected with Chenin Blanc, is headed towards an opulent future, even though the fruit is kept firmly in check by the long-term aging potential.  — R.V.   Published 6/1/2011

Domaine Huët 2007 Le Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec Chenin Blanc (Vouvray)

More off-dry than medium sweet, this is a fabulously concentrated wine. It has honey, spice, lemon and sweet pear flavors, which give it a bright, vivid character in its youth. Expect it to close up for 3–4 years, before emerging again as a wine with elegance, balance and complexity.  — R.V.   Published 9/1/2009

Domaine Huët 2010 Le Mont Sec Chenin Blanc (Vouvray)

Very pure in character, a wine that expresses the chalk terroir. Minerality and complexities of bright acidity, flavors of pear juice and grapefruit presage a final hint of honey.  — R.V.   Published 6/1/2011
