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.

    This slightly off-dry wine is ripe with delicious nectarine and kiwi flavors. Its balance is just right, poised between freshness and rich fruitiness. A touch of honey adds a soft aftertaste. Drink the wine now.

  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.

    2018 / 750 ml. | Item#50140

    RP9393 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 31st May 2019
    The 2018 Vouvray Le Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec is clear, bright and fresh on the chalky/spicy nose. Round and lush on the palate, the 2018 is a dense, refined and charmingly sweet Haut-Lieu with accessible fruit and a stimulatingly salty finish that reveals very fine tannins and lovely sur-lie texture. This is a delicious Chenin from Vouvray but still young. Tasted in May 2019.
    SP9393 pts. - Wine Spectator - Nov 15, 2019
    Round and expressive, with great balance between the sweetness of orchard fruit and bracing acidity reminiscent of clementine. Jasmine and sweet spice notes emerge midpalate, while ground ginger details mark the velvety finish. Drink now through 2034. 2,100 cases made.
