‘The 2018 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux is clear and seductively ripe on the elegant, still yeasty nose with a mineral backbone and its chalky background. Sweet and lush but fine and filigreed on the palate, this is a salty, frisky, elegant, densely woven and well-structured Haut-Lieu with fine tannins and a long, complex finish that is rich and finesses at the same time, with lingering piquancy and stimulating salinity. This 2018 is a very charming but also serious Chenin Blanc with fine tannins, good tension and aging potential. Drink 2020 – 2050.’ – Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, 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.
