"The 2014 Vouvray Pétillant is such an inviting wine. Scents of apricot, pastry, wild flowers, hazelnut and orange peel appear first. Generous and creamy on the palate, with a gentle mousse, the 2014 is impeccably balanced and harmonious. The airy, gracious finish makes it impossible to resist a second taste. It is a great start to this tasting of new releases from Huet."
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 estate is now run by Benjamin Joliveau, a Vouvray native who started in 2009, working closely with both Jean-Bernard Berthomé and even overlapping with Noel Pinguet. With the continuity of this veteran team at the helm, coupled with the endless support and passion of second generation siblings Sarah & Hugo Hwang, Domaine Huet may be making its most consistently great wines. The estate was also one of the earliest adopters of biodynamic practices (certified since 1993), and with years of experience working with the appellation's greatest terroirs, the team at Huet are achieving the utmost level of transparency, purity, and knife-edged balance in the wines.
