2022 Domaine Huet Vouvray Demi-Sec “Clos du Bourg”, Loire Valley, France 375ml



Gaston Huet believed this to be the greatest of all Vouvray vineyards. With the Première Côte’s shallowest, stoniest soils, its wines often synthesize Le Mont’s intense minerality with Le Haut-Lieu’s generous texture.


Domaine Huet’s iconic estate’s three parcels—Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont, and Clos du Bourg—compose most of Vouvray’s première côte. They were an early adopter of biodynamic farming and stand as a model for small producers around the world.

Le Haut Lieu is Huet’s original vineyard, lying slightly higher and further from the Loire than the other two parcels, and produces the most open and accessible of their wines, with broad richness and a tropical-inflected palate. Even though this is structured to age for multiple decades, it’s definitely the most approachable now—an exceptional pairing with beautifully ripe cheeses or as its own after-dinner treat.
