This ancient, walled vineyard has the estate's shallowest, stoniest soils. The wines are rich and intense. Many consider this to be Vouvray's finest single vineyard site. Size: 6 hectares. Undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in large, old oak demi-muids as well as stainless steel vats. There is no encouragement of the malolactic fermentation, thus many Huet wines remain rich in malic acid, a character that brings an age-worthiness to the wines. The concentration of residual sugar in demi-sec cuvées is traditionally around 10-20 g/l

Wine AdvocateStraw-yellow, almost golden in its color, Huet's 2013 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec displays a very clear, intense and aromatic bouquet of ripe, yellow-fleshed fruits and a discreet limestone flavor. More open, round and accessible today on the palate than the corresponding Le Haut-Lieu, this is a full-bodied, complex and mineral Chenin that shows a stunning elegance along with a lingering salinity in the very long, tension-filled and lovely aromatic finish. This is a very pleasant Chenin from this difficult vintage.

Wine SpectatorThis is nicely rendered for the vintage, with a steely, minerally spine buried in the core of apple, ginger, pear and quince flavors. Shows good focus, with a taut feel on the finish that should loosen in the cellar. Best from 2016 through 2020.- J.
