The wine offer of the Loire Valley is nothing but diverse, and Vouvray is the only region that best typifies this diversity. Admittedly, Vouvray is all about one variety: Chenin Blanc. Vouvray is located in the coolest part of the Loire and the climate has the most influence on the wine style. In colder years, increased acidity lends itself to both still and sparkling wines that can be dry, semi-dry or medium dry.

Domaine Huet is without a doubt Reference for top wines in the Loire! Domaine Huet, founded in 1928, has three special and different terroirs: Le Mont with 8 hectares, Le Haut-Lieu with 9 hectares and Le Clos de Bourg with 6 hectares surrounded by a stone wall. We are located east of Tours in the Loire. Since 1990, Huet has been one of the forerunners of biodynamic viticulture. This cultivation method, which fully respects the soil, the plant and the environment, ensures that the Chenin Blanc shows its true character and authenticity here. In the wine cellar, the wines ferment in a mix of old oak barrels (demi muids) and stainless steel tanks. Fermentation starts with the natural, own yeast. After the first fermentation, there is no lactic acid fermentation so that the wines retain their characteristic 'fraicheur'.

The only dry wine of the vintage is the 2020 Vouvray Le Mont Sec. The Vouvray Le Mont Sec 2020 is clear, pure, subtle, deep and fresh, with very refined chalky/sandy lemon aromas. Pure wine with a lot of tension. A touch of flint in the scent mixed with honey notes and some pear. On the palate this is a dense, fabulously juicy, fruity and elegant Chenin whose immediate appeal and sheer finesse are initially reminiscent of Riesling, while the texture is too rich and the salty and finely tannic finish is too intense and powerful for Riesling. With more aeration, the Le Mont becomes more and more intense and complex. The 2020 has a lot of excitement, energy and grip and is very promising. 95/100 Parker
