The 2014 Clos du Bourg Sec from Domaine Huët is another outstanding example of the vintage, with the year’s early structural accessibility quite evident, but also with the depth and balance to age very long and gracefully as well. The nose is still fairly unevolved, but pure and promising in its constellation of quince, apple, grapefruit, complex minerality, lanolin and spring flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, focused and very promising, with a lovely core, great layering of ripe fruit and soil, bright acids and a very long, open and primary finish. A beautiful wine in the making. (Drink between 2017-2045)
The 2014 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Sec is brighter colored than the Haut-Lieu and shows a white-golden color. The nose indicates a very delicate, fresh and mineral wine of great finesse and beautifully clear white fruit flavors, which changes somewhere between young Chablis and Riesling from a limestone terroir. This is just gorgeous (or will be one day) and provided with some smoky flavors of Speck or air-dried hamm (jamón serrano), along with lemon juice, chalk, carambola and some floral flavors. Like the 2014 Haut-Lieu Sec, the Clos du Bourg is also quite round and gentle on the first palate; it shows a great finesse, refined fruit elegance and enervating raciness that reminds me of the finest dry (German or Southern Palatinate) Rieslings, although the power and length seems even stronger towards the finish. I have rarely tasted a young Chenin that combines power, finesse, elegance and persistency in such a perfectly balanced way. This is surely a wine to buy, drink and store. The only error possible here is to buy too little of it. 94+ points.(SR)
