To anyone who knows Vouvray, Huet needs no introduction. This estate enjoys a reputation second to none. The wines originate from three superb individual vineyards : Le Haut Lieu, Clos du Bourg and Le Mont. Le Haut Lieu, surrounding the late Mr Huet's home, was already considered one of the best vineyard sites in the region as early as the 15th century. The vineyards are operated according to biodynamic principles with the total avoidance of chemical fertilizers. The wine making is traditional with cool fermentation and long ageing in cask and bottle in the cool damp cellars carved out of the chalk cliffs.
The resulting wines are very special. Sometimes austere and closed when young these wines age beautifully. They are the expression of the Chenin Blanc at its best. The sweet wines from the great vintages are the stars. They may be kept for 50 years or more and still show their gorgeous honey botrytised flavours over layers of rich unctuous fruit.
