Karaktär

Fruktig och ren doft med inslag av blodapelsin, örter, citrus, päron, äpple och lite honung. Smaken är torr med en hög fin syra och fin mineralitet. Vinet bjuder på en lång, härlig eftersmak med en ton av blodgrapefrukt som avrundar med en angenäm bitterhet.

Lagring

50% av vinet har lagrats 6 månader i franska ekfat, demi-muids. Resterande del har enbart lagrats i ståltank. Vinet kan drickas redan nu men även under gynnsamma förhållanden lagras fram till 2036.

Passar till

Serveras vid 11°C till konfiterat lammlägg, ål, fågel eller härliga, milda ostar.

Recensioner

The deep brown clay soils of the Haut-Lieu plateau provide the typical fruitiness and freshness wonderfully in Huet's 2019 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Sec. Ripe pear, tangerine and orange fruits with notes of lemon grass and green pimientos intertwined with very fine chalky and later tobacco notes give a remarkably fine, elegant and harmonious, subtly complex and simply gorgeous bouquet with floral (lime blossom!) and yeasty aromas that are immediately attractive. Delicate and linear on the palate, this is a pure, fresh, bone-dry, lean and textured, highly refined and perfectly interwoven Chenin with persistent purity, finesse, salty-mineral tension and very fine tannins. Highly finessed and so pure and vivacious! This is a chalky picture-book Haut-Lieu that can age for many years, even though it is already dangerously seductive! There was no dry Le Haut-Lieu produced in 2018, but the 2019 is possibly the finest, most delicate and elegant I've had in recent years, at least at this early stage. A terrific and buoyant Vouvray that any Chenin lover should try—or, better yet, cellar! Drink Date 2020 - 2050
