    Vouvray ‘Le Haut Lieu‘ Moelleux - Chenin Blanc

    Review

    The 2015 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Moelleux displays open and elegant ripe fruit (pineapples, oranges) with some dusty flavors of crushed rocks. Powerful but full of finesse and elegance, this is a piquant and stimulating sweet wine with grip and tension. However, I find it rather less complex than the Sec and the Demi-Sec. 92+/100 Stephan Reinhardt

    With the 2015 vintage, Domaine Huet offers (almost) the whole range of Vouvrays again: Secs, Demi-secs, Moelleux and the noble sweet 1ère Tries. However, there was no Clos de Bourg Sec and no Moelleux produced in 2015, just a Demi-Sec; the other crus were selected in all styles and this has not been the case for years now. More than this, 2015 is an exceptional and historic vintage again at Huet (perhaps the best since 1997). I can only recommend to buy cases of all styles. You might know or have learned from my last Huet report (see Interim November 2015), that even the dry and medium-dry wines can age for decades. You just have to find your favorite Huet terroir before you can explore its talents in style and ageability. The 2015s combine super ripe, tropical fruit flavors and juicy textures with concentration, perfectly integrated acidities and enormous precision that reflects the different terroirs, even in the noble sweet Première Tries that ranges between 89 (Le Haut-Lieu) and 117 (Le Mont) grams per liter of residual sugar.
