    November 19, 2021 - Beautifully balanced floral fruit nectar.
    Perfect with a Mediterranean stew of chicken, leeks, fennel, garlic.
    A bit of a splurge for a white (for me) at $37 WineAccess, but I wish I had a case!

    November 18, 2021 - Just a hint of alcoholic heat when first popped. This wine is one of an outstanding trio in 2019. I really enjoy the verve and depth of all of the dry Huets in this vintage. This rendition of Le Haut Lieu has more weight than usual but with all the complexity, green apple, waxy honey, and lime peel. Crisp, refreshing acidity carries the finish. Lovely wine

    November 15, 2021 - Decided to revisit and this bottle is nothing like the one from August. There is a hint of herbal but I don't feel it is overwhelming the wine. Instead of the long-lingering herbal taste, it has juicy, mouthwatering fruit, high acidity, and a touch of mineral and herbal. Really lovely and mouthwatering. Very good just out of the cellar.

    Really enjoying this bottle. Previous one must have been a bad one.

    October 30, 2021 - The 2019s are pretty stellar. Haut Lieu is always the lightest for my palate. Very clean, with white peach, linen, honey simple. In perfect balance. These should be fantastic for the long haul

    October 29, 2021 - This wine is pale straw in hue. Its aromas include green apple, lime, cut grass, and an interesting bready note that reminds me of champagne. On the palate, it has a lot of fruity flavor with the lime really coming out. It is bone dry with high acidity, medium body with a nice mouthfeel, medium alcohol, and a nice long finish. Paired well with pesto pan fried gnocchi and shrimp. Excellent!
