'The 2018 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec is clear, bright and fresh on the chalky/spicy nose. Round and lush on the palate, the 2018 is a dense, refined and charmingly sweet Haut-Lieu with accessible fruit and a stimulatingly salty finish that reveals very fine tannins and lovely sur-lie texture. This is a delicious Chenin from Vouvray but still young. Tasted in May 2019.' – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 93/100

'Round and expressive, with great balance between the sweetness of orchard fruit and bracing acidity reminiscent of clementine. Jasmine and sweet spice notes emerge midpalate, while ground ginger details mark the velvety finish. Drink now through 2034.' – Aleks Zecevic, Wine Spectator, 93/100

Producer information Domaine Huet is the region's most famous producer. Known for their elegant, flinty style, the domaine's wines are amongst the finest and longest lasting white wines in the world. Produced from 3 vineyards in varying degrees of sweetness depending on the vintage, the hallmark of Huet's wines is their unmistakable freshness and natural acidity. Domaine Huet was established in 1928 and has been farmed biodynamically since 1990. Each of Huet's three iconic vineyards imparts a different signature to its wine. Le Haut-Lieu's deep limeston-clay soil produces wines that typically blossom early. Le Mont has less clay and more stone, yielding young wines of intense minerality. With age, Le Mont cuvées develop great length and finesse. And due to its extremely shallow, stony soils, Clos du Bourg often synthesizes Le Mont's intense minerality with Le Haut-Lieu's generous texture.
