Althought the URL starts with “Vouvray”, I have done a shameful job of writing about them. Tasting the 2006 Huet Vouvray Le Mont, from a legendary producer in Vouvray, has made up for that neglect. With the dollar in the crapper, I could not believe that a dry Chenin Blanc this wow-worthy can be bought for a hair under twenty bucks…for a half-bottle.
This Vouvray is very pure, precise, and will only get better. It would be amazing with oysters. When comparing the cost of the Huet with the prices for White Burgundy, it seems criminal to pay that much for the latter. This Huet is a mind-boggling value.
Beyond highly recommended.
