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.

  8. Domaine Huet Clos du Bourg Vouvray Sec

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#50135

    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2019
    Pure and expressive, with cardamom and verbena notes framing the core of yellow apple and quince fruit. Electric acidity fuels the flavors, but this remains a bit intense. The appeal comes through, but this is not fully open yet. Best from 2021 through 2031. 1,400 cases made.
    RP9292 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st May 2019
    The 2018 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec is the only dry Chenin produced at Huet that year. Tasted in May 2019, the Clos du Bourg opens with a delicate nose of white fruit and mirabelle plums, along with chalky and very fine sur-lie notes. The palate is intense, round and fruity but filigreed in its structure and persistent in its mineral grip and stimulating salinity. The yeasty texture gives this 13.5% alcohol Chenin a fine structure and mouthfeel. It’s not very long or complex, but it’s charming and pleasant to drink even young.

  12. 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.

    2013 / 750 ml. | Item#42454

    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.
