    An Enticing and Expressive Chenin Blanc

    Established in 1928 by Victor Huet and his son Gaston, Domaine Huet is known today as one of the top producers of must-have Chenin Blanc. Victor Huet relocated from Paris to the Loire Valley and purchased a vineyard in Vouvray. The vineyard site, Le Haut-Lieu, is one of the best sites in the area, located on Premiere Cote. Also known as “first slope,” Premiere Cote is considered the grand cru area of the Vouvray. After Gaston took over the domaine in 1937, he dedicated his life to making Domaine Huet wines known for their magnificent quality.

    With the help from Gaston’s son-in-law, Noel Pinguet and vineyard manager Jean-Bernard Bertholme, Domaine Huet was an early adopter to biodynamic farming. Nature already dictated which grapes would be used for sweet and dry styles each year, so it only seemed logical to let nature and terroir shine through in the wines.

    Le Haut-Lieu was the first property Victor Huet purchased to establish Domaine Huet. This nine-hectare vineyard has deep limestone-rich soils creating a magnificent mineral backbone in the wine. The Domaine Huet Le Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec 2018 is round and expressive with great balance and plenty of acidity. Notes of sweet orchard fruit and citrus fruit lead to hints of jasmine and spice. The palate is mineral-driven and has lovely, fine tannins and a touch of sweetness for a fuller-bodied white wine. Hold onto this wine for a few years and watch it shine.
