Presented to me double-blind. The wine appears a deep burnished golden color with medium+ viscosity. Notes of baked apples, white flowers, chamomile minerals and a petrol thing. On the palate, medium+ acid. Confirming the fruit but the apples are spiced and there’s a slightly nutty, oxidized thing going. Alcohol seems elevated too. Loads of character. The color and oxidization suggested it was a combo of style and age; I figured 10-15 years. I vacillated between Alsatian Riesling GC or a Chenin from the Loire by a great producer. Ultimately, I called 2010 Savennières as it actually reminded me of Joly’s “Clos de la Bergerie”. LOL! Close!!! These Huet Sec’s age amazing 🥲. — 2 months ago
Loved it. — a year ago
Crisp,clean, dry, and fresh. Mineral driven with medium to fine bubbles and a crisp citrus, high acid finish. Nothing flashy, but a solid sipper. — 5 months ago
Lovely chilled red. Bright blueberry fruit, yeasty, slight tartness, and very refreshing! — 3 months ago

A stunning deep gold color, viscous and oily in the glass.
Nose has honeycomb, sliced almonds, baked pear, dried peach, oxidized yellow apple peel and dried citrus peel.
Palate has peach jam reduction, wildflower honey, candied orange, ripe apricot, over-ripe peach with a full, round mouthfeel. Mild acidity with pleasant sweetness.
Chenin Blanc oh how I love thee! This is in a great spot today, but would expect it to hold through 2025-31 at this stage, in proper storage. Decanted 4H, yet continuing to unfold. — a year ago
