Domaine Huet Vouvray Sec Clos du Bourg 2019
Domaine Huet is an iconic Vouvray producer and lauded for making some of the world's most compelling dry white wines from the Chenin Blanc, AND some of the longest-lived sweet wines of the same grape. Founded in 1928 by Gaston Huet with the purchase of the vineyard "Le Haut Lieu", the estate expanded in the mid-1950s with the acquisition of two additional vineyards on the Première Côte -- Le Mont (purchased in 1957) and Clos du Bourg (farmed since 1953, purchased in 1963) -- which ensured the domaine’s place in the French wine pantheon. Today Domaine Huet is owned and operated by American brother-sistor duo, Sarah & Hugo Hwang, who have kept the team in tact, including manager Jean-Bernard Berthomé who joined the estate in 1979. With his years of experience working with the appellation's greatest terroirs, Jean-Bernard and his team are achieving incredible transparency, purity, and balance in the wines of this world-renowned estate.
