Aromas of gooseberry, guava, grapefruit and melon, while the palate is balanced by fine acidity and fruit sweetness. A wine with great aromatic power.more
The top dry cuvée for many Huet fans from the Clos next to Vouvray's cemetery. It exhibits a very pure and lightly perfumed apple and pear aroma. The palate has a saline backbone which adds tension and focus to a seriously classy wine. There is an almost electrical current running through it as it crackles with minerals. The finish is impressive and fragrant with a fine bergamot essence.
Something a tiny bit oxidative on the nose, giving a bruised apple sort of character, but then wonderfully pronounced stone fruit comes through on the palate, with a touch of honey and honeysuckle. Lip-smacking acidity is well balanced with the fleshy body. 13%. Drink 2017-2025

Bottle 75cl £13.00
Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. This wine particularly stands out for its great aromatic intensity, with marked hints of stone fruit (peaches) and white fruit (ripe apples and quinces) against a citrus background of lemon tree leaves. Big, flavoursome and fresh in the mouth, with a well-integrated acidity. Fruity and particularly persistent finish.
