If Huet sec was still $22 a bottle, it would move faster!
Those were the days. I used to buy stupid amounts of Huet.

Funny, but I buy lots and lots of Loire whites but almost never any red. Never really noticed that before.
As I’ve said before, that one can find (if savvy) the best Chenin wines on the planet for well under $40 for sec and demisec and under $50 for the 1er Trie Moelleuxs is pretty remarkable in today’s market. You can also pay more, and you are still getting the best Chenin on the planet.

Although there are certain other folks who have hit a stride.

Sufficient Loire representations, across main sub-appellations, in 4 large/reputable wine stores that I ventured into during 4-days here in Paris.

Paris wine retail is dead.. None of those stores were Binny's.

What are their Napa cab selections like? I rest my case.

They're like Phylloxera, except really good with I.T.
