Domaine Huet, Vouvray

Categories: ,

If Vouvray had a Bordeaux-style classification, there’s no doubt that Domaine Huet would be a First Growth, along with Philippe Foreau’s Clos Naudin. Young by Loire standards, the domaine was established in 1928 and over the next few decades acquired three of the best sites in the appellation: Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont, and Clos du Bourg. Each site is farmed with the single focus of expressing its terroir in the finished wines, regardless of the degree of sweetness. Where sweetness is concerned, that’s determined by the way each parcel of each vineyard responds to the vintage. From bone dry to moelleux to botrydized, these are iconic wines across the board.
