The dark orange/golden colored 2015 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux Première Trie has a lovel,y precise and concentrated bouquet of perfectly ripe fruits. Piquant and with a lovely grip and concentration, this is a vibrant, finesse-full and tension-filled Chenin with a beautifully charming fruit and sweetness. The finish is very long, pure and salty, and again full of tension and fine grip. This is a world-class sweet wine. 94+. Oct 2016, www.robertparker.com, Drink: 2025-2050

Domaine Huët’s 2015 Première Trie from the Le Haut Lieu vineyard is more primary and reserved in personality than the straight Moelleux bottling, but deeper, more pristine and ever more promising. The bouquet shows a beautiful glaze of clean botrytis in its aromatic blend of pineapple, sweet quince, tangerine, honey, a lovely cornerstone of soil, orange peel, dried flowers and a bit of smokiness in the upper register. On the palate the wine is pure, focused and full-bodied, with marvelous depth and balance, bright acids, great complexity to come and stunning length and bounce on the superbly energetic and seamless finish. This has a bit of that early vinosity that was found in the Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec and augurs very, very well for its future development! 95+. Nov 2016, www.viewfromthecellar.com, Drink: 2020-2085

Domaine Huet is widely regarded as one of the greatest estates in France. Their Chenin Blancs are one of the most collectible offerings from the Central Loire as they drink deliciously on release but can be aged for decades. The estate covers a total of 35 hectares of vines. These are primarily split among the three single vineyards of Le Haut Lieu, Le Clos du Bourg and Le Mont, and produce a range of sweet, demi-sec and sec Huet wines.
