Always a personal favorite, Haut Lieu Sec is one of the more approachable young Vouvrays from this now famous Domaine. From south-facing vineyards on rich clay and limestone soil, the wine is raised in a combination of tank and old foudres with native yeast fermentations. A delicate vintage for this wine, the nose offers pretty notes of honeysuckle and wildflower honey, white, fleshy stone fruits and lemon curd. The palate is almost totally dry and, again, quite lacy and fresh for Huet with flavors of apple and honey. Likely a better candidate to drink now than to hold, this wine sings alongside fresh scallops simply prepared. -msb
