Domaine du Haut Bourg, 2023 Update
I never miss out on an opportunity to taste with the Choblet brothers at Domaine du Haut Bourg. Not merely because I wish to support vignerons working in the less fashionable appellations, even though that is certainly true. It is because I know that Nicolas and Hervé Choblet have a habit of turning out delicious and distinctive examples of long lees-aged Muscadets. Such as the Origine du Haut Bourg cuvée, which in the 2014 vintage has just been bottled, after more than eight years on the lees.
These are wines I do not want to miss!
The major development chez Choblet this year is not the acquisition of a new vineyard, nor the creation of a new cuvée, but the development of an entirely new domaine. Or at least a new name for half of their pre-existing domaine.Please log in to continue reading:
