    Cuvée presentation

    The Moelleux Le Clos du Bourg Première Trie is a very fine Vouvray, elegant and suitable for a long and excellent ageing. The straw-yellow hue has beautiful golden highlights. The nose offers aromas of candied white fleshy fruit, roasted fruit (apple, pear) and over time, notes of exotic fruit and truffle. On the palate we discover a rare elegance, supported by aromas of candied fruit and finally ginger.

    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.
