Huet is perhaps my favorite producer of Chenin Blanc in the world. These are wines that will last for decades and drink well young (with a bit of air). This is one is demi-sec or off dry. Light golden in color, shimmering bright. The nose is pretty with orange peel, slight peach, sea air and minerals. Medium to full bodied. Slightly sweet but not cloying, which is nicely balanced by acidity. Delicious with flavors or oranges apples and peaches over a mineral base. Long finish. If well stored, this should drink well for fifteen more years or more. Lovely on its own, it will work nicely with lighter salads or more savory desserts.
