Full-bodied, round and fruity on the palate, this is a deep, intense, juicy, silky-textured yet tight, chalky, very complex, sustainably structured and persistently salty-mineral Chenin from old vines that give extra concentration as well as a spectacularly expressive character. This is a great, age-worthy Vouvray with fine tannins and lingering salty tension and finesse. What a finish! The 2019 needs a while to gain finesse and even more complexity. The wine served from the bottle that I tasted nine days before was incredibly amazing! The 2019 is a duty for all Chenin aficionados! 13.5% alcohol. 30,000 bottles made. Tasted in July 2020. - SR

The bouquet offers up an utterly refined constellation of quince, pear, limestone minerality, a nice youthful touch of chalk dust, floral tones that are mostly lilies and a shading of lavender, bee pollen, lanolin and a touch of lemongrass in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, beautifully balanced and rock solid at the core, with superb mineral undertow, electric acidity, laser-like focus and a very, very long, nascently complex and rapier-like finish. This seems structurally more like the Le Haut Lieu Sec this year and is likely to provide a couple of years’ worth window of drinkability before it closes down for hibernation. It is stellar juice in the making.

The 2019 Sec Clos du Bourg is a wine of stature and vertical build. There is real gravitas to the orchard fruit, spice and earthy flavors.

There is real gravitas to the orchard fruit, spice and earthy flavors. Tasted blind, Clos du Bourg might be confused with a red wine such is its feeling of volume and structure. Far from an easygoing Vouvray, Clos du Bourg is a very serious wine. I loved it. In a word: marvelous. In three words: don't miss it. -- Antonio Galloni

Silky in texture, with a subtle bite that firms this up. While this could be enjoyed now, it is still rather tightly wound and should unfurl nicely with age. Best from 2022 through 2034. — A.Z.
