France Loire Valley
Chenin Blanc
Type: White Table Wine
Vintage: 2017

The Chenin Blanc grown in the Clos du Bourg vineyard is tended and hand-harvested with the utmost care to preserve the delicate aromatics that this wine so special. Characterized by deep clay-rich soil with veins of white chalk, Clos du Bourg is a site where Chenin Blanc expresses its wonderful aromatics while maintaining a racy acidity. This dynamic makes the wines entirely cellar-worthy. Like all of Huet’s vineyards, the land has been treated according to biodynamic principles for over 25 years.

 

“Understated aromas of orchard and stone fruits with spice lead into an impressive palate showing great tension and structure. The bright acidity balances the concentrated quince fruit. Delicious purity and energy in a tight package.”
