You might have noticed that I haven’t posted anything in the last few days. I was out of town for a meeting. One night we went with a few business partners to a restaurant in San Francisco. We ate very well and of course we drank wine.
Since I didn’t pick the restaurant it was not up to me to pick the wine. My collegeue decided to go with a white wine from Domaine Huet Vouvray. The winery produces high end wines in the Loire region of France. He selected a 2009 vintage of the ‘Premiere Trie’ Appellation Vouvray Controle.
It is made with 100% Chenin Blanc grapes. ABV: 12.5%. Ginger, lime, white peach, orange and kiwi on the nose. I tasted melon, lemon and honeysuckle. Long finish. Flavorful aftertaste. One of the best white wines from the Loire that I drank in recent years.
Wine Ratings: WE 97 WS 96. I would give the wine at least a 97. Maybe even more. The wine completely impressed me. Average retail price according to wine searcher: $68.
I’m very happy that my colleague picked this wine. This was my first wine from Domaine Huet Vouvray and it was world changing. I can’t imagine that I will enjoy any other white wine in the near future after this!
What is your opinion on this wine?.
