97 points Rebecca Gibb, MW (Vinous): "Drinking the 2020 Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec is like taking your shoes off at the end of a long day of walking and soaking them in warm water: there's just satisfaction and relaxation. The 2020 has a sense of volume but not weight, filling the mouth with depths of pure fruit before the acid pours forth like a canal lock being opened. You can expect a hint of spice and crème caramel alongside apple and florals. I am utterly seduced. Drink: 2021-2035. (Mar 2021)"

95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): "The 2020 Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec from Domaine Huët is the most powerfully-built of the three Demi-Sec bottlings in this very elegant vintage, with great mid-palate depth and backend bounce. The bouquet delivers a very refined blend of quince, pear, a hint of fresh pineapple, limestone minerality, citrus peel, honeycomb and a topnote of dried flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, pure and full-bodied, with a bit more sweetness and mid-palate stuffing than the other two Demi-Secs this year. The wine is beautifully balanced, zesty and rock solid at the core, with great focus and grip on the long, vibrant and nascently complex finish. This still closes with that classic young chenin blanc note of citrus peel. Fine, fine juice. 2021-2085. (May/Jun 2021)"

95 points Stephen Reinhardt (The Wine Advocate): "The 2020 Vouvray Clos du Bourg Demi-Sec is concentrated, deep and still somewhat untamed on the clear, fresh and lemon-fruity yet darker-toned nose compared to the Haut-Lieu. Round and refined yet still with a pretty firm tannin structure, this is a rich and powerful yet elegant and persistently salty Chenin with tension, grip and a sustainable, highly promising finish. The 2020 Clos du Bourg pairs juiciness with finesse and purity with complexity. Tasted as a tank sample shortly before bottling in April 2021. 2027-2155. (May 2021)"

93 points Wine Spectator: "This alluring white imparts both elegance and drive, with ginger, quince and marzipan notes edged with heather, mineral and peach accents. Lovely, with good tension. Drink now through 2033. (9/1/21)"
