Loire Valley

Loire Valley

It’s impossible to quantify, but there is soulfulness—you might even say honesty—to the wines of the Loire Valley. Muscadet presents some of the best values in French wine. Compare these zingy, mineral-driven pleasers to dry Riesling or Chablis. The towns of Chinon and Bourgeuil raise Cabernet Franc to some of its highest expressions as a stand-alone variety. Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé produce some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in the world—deep yet brisk, steely, and chalk full of minerality. Last but certainly not least is the Chenin Blanc from areas such as Vouvray, Montlouis-sur-Loire, Quarts-de-Chaume and others, with styles ranging from bone-dry to dessert sweet—and don’t forget about the bubbles!

It’s hard to think of any French wine region being “under the radar,” but the Loire Valley comes close, and that suits its fans just fine.

  9. Domaine Huet Clos du Bourg Vouvray Sec

    2019 / 750 ml. | Item#52299

    RP9797 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 23rd Jul 2020
    The 2019 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec offers a deep, rich yet pure and refined, intensely aromatic, darker-toned nose with aromas of fully ripe stone and tropical fruit intertwined with earthy, chalky and yeasty notes that make up for further finesse and complexity. Full-bodied, round and fruity on the palate, this is a deep, intense, juicy, silky-textured yet tight, chalky, very complex, sustainably structured and persistently salty-mineral Chenin from old vines that give extra concentration as well as a spectacularly expressive character. This is a great, age-worthy Vouvray with fine tannins and lingering salty tension and finesse. What a finish! The 2019 needs a while to gain finesse and even more complexity. The wine served from the bottle that I tasted nine days before was incredibly amazing! The 2019 is a duty for all Chenin aficionados! 13.5% alcohol. 30,000 bottles made. Tasted in July 2020.
    VN9595 pts. - Vinous - Oct 2020
    The 2019 Sec Clos du Bourg is a wine of stature and vertical build. There is real gravitas to the orchard fruit, spice and earthy flavors. Tasted blind, Clos du Bourg might be confused with a red wine such is its feeling of volume and structure. Far from an easygoing Vouvray, Clos du Bourg is a very serious wine. I loved it. In a word: marvelous. In three words: don’t miss it.

  11. Domaine Huet Le Mont Vouvray Demi-Sec

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#47765

    SP9595 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2019
    This elegant white shows pedigree, featuring wonderful harmony and great complexity, with persimmon and quince flavors, while cardamom, coriander and star anise notes glide along the edges. The acidity gives this power, providing balance, but also incredible energy that runs throughout. Very long and inviting. Best from 2020 through 2038. 1,000 cases made.
    RP94+94+ pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st May 2019
    From green clay and pebbly silex soils, the 2018 Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec offers a clear, intense but elegant and sublime nose that intermixes ripe fruit and ginger aromas with spicy-flinty notes. Very well articulated and precise on the nose, it is lush and intense on the palate, with a good structure and complex finish. This is a highly promising Vouvray whose combination of 14% alcohol and unfermented sugar asks for a couple of years of cellar aging. The finish is salty, pure, tight and vibrantly fresh. A gorgeous, highly energetic wine. Tasted in May 2019.

    SP8989 pts. - Wine Spectator - Sep 30, 2016
    A tangy salted streak adds energy to the core of chamomile, honeysuckle and yellow apple notes, holding sway through the mouthwatering finish. A solid effort for the vintage. Drink now through 2020. 405 cases imported.
    ST8888 pts. - Stephen Tanzer’s International Wine Cellar - Nov/Dec 2014
    Pale golden yellow. Honeyed pear along with an herbal nuance on the nose. Supple on the palate, with sweet melon fruit balanced by subtle acidity and a rustic, slightly phenolic spine. Tobacco and pepper linger on the finish. Almost salty, this wine should benefit from further bottle aging.
