This Clos du Bourg covers an area of 6 hectares and is bordered by stone walls and is located in Première Côte vines up the hill from the church of Vouvray. In the 7th century, it was a fiefdom of the collegiate church of Saint-Martin de Tours. Its soil is fairly thin, with an average depth of one metre, and thus in direct contact with non-active limestone rock. The Clos du Bourg produces a powerful, well-structured wine that is sold in both demi-sec and sweet versions. A more highly concentrated cuvée also exists: the Mont 1ère Trie.

Vouvray Clos du Bourg Moelleux Huet (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 8°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Escalopes de foie gras de canard aux raisins, Cannelés, Tarte Tatin.

  • Vintage score: 17/20
  • What the experts say...

    Il faut à tout prix goûter en parallèle le Haut-Lieu et le Clos du Bourg dans leur version moelleuse Premier Tri pour comprendre l'absolue subtilité du terroir vouvrillon dans ses influences de calcaire et de silex. (Bettane et Desseauve 2005)

    Information about domain Huet

    The Vouvray AOC was first created in 1936, and covers 1,800 hectares spread across eight different municipalities. The only grape variety allowed here is Chenin Blanc (also known as Pineau de la Loire). Established in 1928, today the Huet estate encompasses 35 hectares mainly spread over three properties: Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont and Le Clos du Bourg. A well-known local figure, Gaston Huet (former mayor of Vouvray, member of the INAO), is now retired, and the estate was managed by his son-in-law, Noël Pinguet, from 1976 to 2012. Since 1990, the vineyard has been worked entirely according to biodynamic principles. Across the estate as a whole, half of the vines are between 30 and 50 years old. The property was bought in 2004 by Anthony Hwang, retaining the same essential philosophy and keeping Jean-Bernard Berthomé as cellar master. This estate is one of the most famous in the region, always delivering wines of the highest level. Top drawer.
