Description
 
Maison Huet has been a leading force in the Vouvray appellation for quite some time now. Founded in 1928, the estate now covers 35 hectares, which are divided up between three properties: Le Mont, Le Haut-Lieu and Le Clos du Bourg--throughout the region that have been farmed in the biodynamic method since 1990. These wines are stunning and are worth being in your cellar. Legends in the making here! Stretching 9 hectares Le Haut-Lieu provides extremely deep limestone and brown clay soils. Due to the rich heavy soils the wines from this site tend to have a richer rounder character, deep nuances of stone fruit and finish off with a mouthwatering, juicy finish.

From a classic vintage with high levels of malic acid, the 2007 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux does not show any primary fruit aromas that the 2008s still deliver, but is also far away from being matured. This in-between wine needs a little bit of time in the glass to reveal its minerally flavored dried fruit and lemon aromas. Rather subtle and pure than rich and intense is also the motto on the palate, which is elegant, well balanced, and slightly sweet and mineral in the finish. This wine remains discreet and does not explode or flow generously over the palate, but reveals a nice finesse and elegance. The finish shows a good grip and purity, and again is slightly drying and by far not as round as in 2009 or 2008. This wine will hardly improve over the years but certainly change. Wine Advocate 91
