Domaine Huet was founded in 1928 by Victor Huet and is an iconic domain in the Loire. His son Gaston now owns thirty hectares of chenin blanc, divided over three parcels: Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont and Le Clos du Bourg. The estate was one of the forerunners of biodynamic viticulture in the French vineyard. This method, in which respect for the soil, the plant and the environment is paramount, ensures that the chenin blanc shows its true character and authenticity.
The suppleness of the brown clay of Le Haut-Lieu, the chiseled flint of Le Mont and the roundness of the limestone of Le Clos du Bourg give the Chenin grape wines an incomparable elegance. During the harvest, the ripe grapes are cut away separately in different phases, resulting in the different wine types. This is actually comparable to the German approach of Kabinett, Spätlese, Auslese, etc. The terms sec and demi-sec have therefore nothing to do with the names used in Champagne, because there it is a matter of dossage.
All wines, from dry/sec, semi-dry/demi-sec and sweet/moëlleux are of top quality, very precisely made and excellent for storage. In addition, the wines of Huet have a wonderful freshness to perfectly balance the little residual sweetness.
