Medium gold, the 2016 Vouvray Première Trie from Domaine Huet shines with well defined, intense aromas of bruised and baked apple, dried apricot, dried peach, orange zest, honeysuckle, chamomile and some mushrooms. On the palate, the sweetness is perfectly balanced by a bracing acidity, giving a medium to full-bodied wine with a long finish. This is a solid effort from this biodynamic estate. Drink now until 2031. — 22 days ago

The best wine I’ve had in a long time. Bright, light, and simply delicious. Drank it late July 2022 at the BAAG with A and IAM on their respective visits. Sparks joy. — 3 months ago
Sweet aroma explosion. Light honey, Mirabelle plums, apricots, white tea, candied orange peel, yet it remains so fresh.
On the palate this is so balance, so juicy, v. sweet to still fresh. And there’s depth, a hint of tannic structure, a stony, mineral finish.

Color of fall leaves turning with subdued bubbles from age but with enough creamy mousse. It’s nutty, bruised apple vibrant slight oxidative quality was powerful, elegant and persistent. Racy, saline and “vinous.” Went well with every course at Oiji Mi. — a month ago
The bright acidity of Le Mont Demi-Sec really shows itself in 2020, producing a clean, racy style. There's a welcoming aspect to this wine with its 20 grams of residual sugar, but the flint in this vineyard keeps it strict and provides that taut line. It is super smart, balanced and really joyful now and will continue to provide pleasure for decades. Wait. Or don't. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, September 2022)

When a 14$ wine brings joy, it is an accomplishment. Very small production by a chinon maker. Somehow more nuanced & lithe than most Sauvignon blancs from the Loire, less green & more pale stone fruits, like underripe apricot. Perfect acidity. Yowza — 5 months ago
