Huet always sets a high bar and here’s another wine where the estate vaults to new heights. So floral. So much floral intrigue, it’s baroque and achingly beautiful. I don’t think any Chenin I’ve tasted has the level of floral definition of Domaine Huet’s best. And always of course just the right acid and texture, some lemon, a touch of honey and always high-toned and weightless. Effortless balance. Or rather, just plain in-service-to-the terroir, sane, zen (egoless) and restrained winemaking.

This was my white of the day until we opened another - what not to like - @David L and o totally agree with @Antonio Galloni and his rating - I know a Chenin blanc - but this is a special wine - try it and I promise you will agree

The 2019 Sec Clos du Bourg is a wine of stature and vertical build. There is real gravitas to the orchard fruit, spice and earthy flavors. Tasted blind, Clos du Bourg might be confused with a red wine such is its feeling of volume and structure. Far from an easygoing Vouvray, Clos du Bourg is a very serious wine. I loved it. In a word: marvelous. In three words: don't miss it. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, October 2020)

Excellent. Lots of citrus and acidic burst… with air it rounds one and is more herbaceous

First try of Chenin blanc and didn't really know what to expect. Lots of stone fruits on the nose and something a bit different but in the end just a bit boring

Tasted from a coravin after Domaine aux Moines ‘99. Bottle not cold. Far more fragrant, of pears, peaches, and Tempier Rose. Far lighter in color; pale. Electric. Not as smooth or buttery as the Moines, or as full bodied (feels thin). Not bitter at all. Dry. Don’t get any taste of minerals. Love it.
