Getting old. Honeycomb, lemon, and still some nice acid — 7 months ago
Some people drank this in 2020…you should really try it in 2022. The wait has done wonders! — a year ago
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. — 2 years ago

The 2020 version of this cuvée once again notches into my top white wines ever. Elements are in balance and working with vim and vigor. Body is full, acid is bright and crystalline but somehow tender (that’s relative - it is still scorching). And the texture is world class. The floral and confectionary perfumes that emerge in time layered over wool and slate simply steal the show.
New Year, and let’s be honest the world seems to be hurtling past the point of no return into a black hole of shit, but I’m thankful for Roches Neuves / Boudignon / Huet / Closel and the other guiding lights of Loire Chenin, making what I maintain is some of the best wine on earth and selling it for a pittance (even at $80 this is a value) Until everyone else wises up, I will just be over here with my other Chenin zealots (here’s looking at you @Peter van den Besselaar ) nursing bottles of Saumur, Savennieres and Anjou and laughing at our good fortune.

Very good tonight. Magenta/purple in the glass with a nice brilliance. A dizzying array of fruit, with the red spectrum featured. Tar, some floral (violet) notes beautifully balanced and a long, pleasing finish. While it is powerful, there is an elegance which vaults it to the next level. I’d say my favorite of Mr. Pott’s wines. — 4 years ago
