$185 | 2018 Domaine Huët Vouvray “Cuvée Constance” 500mL

Description

  • Domaine Huet is an iconic Vouvray producer and lauded for making some of the world’s most compelling white wines, including some of the longest-lived sweet wines.
  • Founded in 1928 by Gaston Huet with the purchase of the vineyard “Le Haut Lieu”, the estate expanded in the mid-1950s with the acquisition of two additional vineyards on the Première Côte — Le Mont (purchased in 1957) and Clos du Bourg (farmed since 1953, purchased in 1963) — which ensured the domaine’s place in the French wine pantheon.
  • One of the earliest practicioners of Biodynamics, Domaine Huet started farming Biodynamically in 1990, and have been certified since 1993.
  • When made, the Cuvée Constance (named for Gaston Huet’s mother) ranks among the world’s greatest dessert wines. The 2018 Cuvee Constance has 136 grams per liter of resitual sugar, 3.8 grams per liter of total acidity and a pH of 3.50.

 

“The 2018 Vouvray “Cuvée Constance” from Domaine Huët is a stunning young wine. The bouquet is deep, pure and youthfully complex, offering up scents of sweet quince, honeycomb, barley sugar, heather, chalky soil tones and a topnote of orange peel. On the palate the wine is pure, full-bodied, focused and complex, with a great core of fruit, lovely soil undertow and grip, zesty acids and a long, hauntingly balanced and refined finish. This is a puppy today, but also delicious to drink in its youthful guise. I would do my best to try and hold onto bottles for at least another decade and really let the fireworks unfold!”
