What a special wine to be able to offer—a quarter of a century old and only just hitting its straps. Noël Pinguet considered 1996 a great, ‘classical’ vintage for Huet, and this wine is dancing and singing to that tune. It’s a beautiful and refined aged Chenin.

Reviews

“Honey and spice aromas give way to a luscious palate, with notes of honey, marzipan, orange and dried apricot. Noticeable sweetness is well balanced with acidity. Though rich, it's not really a dessert wine, and though it would accompany food well, it's probably best appreciated on its own. Delicious now, and should improve through 2010.”
