Lemon peel, Apple skin, white flowers with a little honey and wool. Great accidity and texture.

Textbook, classic Vouvray from one of the most classic, storied estates in the appellation. Walks a perfect tightrope between rich, waxy density and nimble freshness. This is what I'd use to show someone new to the Loire what high-quality, classic dry Loire Chenin is supposed to taste like. These 2014 Huet secs are really banging on all cylinders. Pours a medium (-)/medium intensity yellow gold hue. Highly concentrated nose of ripe, slightly oxidized green apple and apricot, smoky, crushed flint minerality, fresh lychee, waxy honeycomb, wet wool, and some savory aged cheese rind leesiness. On the palate, (slightly less) ripe, waxy stone fruit, slightly oxidized Anjou pear juice, raw honey, wet stone, savory leesiness, and lychee. High acid, medium (-)/medium body with lovely lush leesy texture. Alcohol is medium/medium (+) but totally in balance and not hot at all on the palate. Dry but not what something I'd describe as "bone dry" though. Has a long life ahead of it if you want to cellar it, but still so tasty and generous enough in its youth as well. Really satisfying , electric stuff.
