Domaine Huet 2019 Vouvray Sec Le Haut-Lieu, Loire Valley
The aromatics on this wine are absolutely captivating. Each swirl of the glass awakens another brilliant layer. The Le Haut-Lieu is the original vineyard for Huet and the one with the most clay, giving the wines a little earlier generosity. On the palate there is a focused and pristine core of ripe pears, citrus rind, night blooming flowers and quince. There is something very elegant here, but it is equally alluring and playful. This is a dry white wine with some body to it so it’s perfect for baked, steaky white fish, river fish, simple chicken and even subtle pork dishes.
