Domaine Huet is an iconic Vouvray producer and lauded for making some of the world’s most compelling white wines, including some of the longest-lived sweet wines.
Founded in 1928 by Gaston Huet with the purchase of the vineyard “Le Haut Lieu”, the estate expanded in the mid-1950s with the acquisition of two additional vineyards on the Première Côte — Le Mont (purchased in 1957) and Clos du Bourg (farmed since 1953, purchased in 1963) — which ensured the domaine’s place in the French wine pantheon.
One of the earliest practicioners of Biodynamics, Domaine Huet started farming Biodynamically in 1990, and have been certified since 1993.
VINEYARD - The estate’s first vineyard, purchased in 1928. Its nine hectares have the richest soils and, generally, yields the most precocious wines.
SOIL - Limestone-rich, clay soils
VITICULTURE - The vines are farmed using biodynamic methods and harvested by hand.
Tasting Notes - The 2022 Le Haut-Lieu Sec has a floral character, displaying notes of straw and a waxy quality. Full of phenolic, lip-smacking texture woven through its core, lending a sense of satisfying grunt to this dry yet balanced style. Clarity, precision and harmony are keywords in this wine's execution.
