I’ll admit it. I had no idea Huet made a sparkler. They do and it’s really good. All chenin blanc (obviously) and at 10 years old it’s starting to drink well but could definitely go longer. Bone dry, chalky and with pear and lychee notes abounding. A nice change up in sparklers. — 3 days ago
100% cabernet franc. without added sulphites. unfiltered wine, very natural. A delight of freshness. very lively wine on fresh black fruits: blueberries, blackcurrants, blackberries. complex notes of copper, tobacco ... deep, dense with a beautiful freshness, and a light final. magnificent ! — 7 days ago
Not a fan of most Chinons Blanc, as they often start life lean and mean, then go absolutely nowhere. This, however, is that rare exception: already tender and alluring, showing acacia, melon, honeysuckle and wet gravel, with an unctuous texture and a fair dash of residual sugar (albeit perfectly balanced by massive acids). Fabulous. — 6 days ago
I’d honestly forgotten that Sauvignon Blanc can have personality. This is the second in a week that’s made my brain tingle. Accented by pronounced viscosity and texture are ripe juicy orchard fruits - the softest pears and ripe red delicious thick skinned apples. — 8 days ago
Vintage 2010 / Tasted my last bottle of this Chenin Blanc four years ago... no signs of aging, amazingly fresh, vivid and charming. This ‘tendre’ has some wood-ripening. Beautiful smell of jasmin and vanilla. Perfect harmony and many many years to go. I love it. / Paired with a ‘Brabants worstenbroodje’ a regional specialty, a saucage bun. — 14 days ago
