Domaine Huet Description

Domaine Huet Description

Since its founding in 1928, Vouvray’s Domaine Huët has been the standard-bearer for great, ageworthy Chenin Blanc. And to this day, year after year, the estate produces some of the world’s most compelling white wines—and in a remarkable range that spans sparkling, dry, semi-dry, and remarkable dessert or Moelleux styles.

The domaine’s founder, Victor Huët, was a Parisian bistro owner. However, with lungs and nerves shattered by his experiences in WWI, Victor re-settled to the town of Vouvray in France’s beautiful Loire Valley. He soon purchased the first of his great vineyards, Le Haut-Lieu, in 1928, and Domaine Huët was born. Victor’s son Gaston (born 1910) worked with his father from the beginning, and assumed full charge by 1937. With an obsessive devotion to quality, and an engaging showman’s personality, Gaston built the Huët legacy over the next 55 years despite spending five years in a German POW camp during WWII.

For all his salesmanship, Gaston understood clearly that quality must come first—and that quality started with great vineyards. His Haut-Lieu parcel, which lies on Vouvray’s “Première Côte” (or “first slope”), is home to virtually all of the appellation’s acknowledged grand cru vineyards.

Huet Vouvray Clos de Bourg Moelleux 2003 !er Trie -  

VINEYARD - This ancient, walled vineyard has the estate’s shallowest, stoniest soils. The wines are rich and intense. Many consider Bourg to be Vouvray’s finest single vineyard site. Size: 6 hectares
SOIL - Limestone-rich, clay soils
VITICULTURE - The vines are farmed using biodynamic methods and harvested by hand.

Notes from Gaston Huet - 

Gaston Huët believed Clos de Bourg to be the greatest of all Vouvray vineyards. With the Première Côte’s shallowest, stoniest soils, its wines often synthesize Le Mont’s intense minerality with Le Haut-Lieu’s generous texture. Clos du Bourg is often the richest and most powerful wine in the lineup.
