Domaine Huet 2019s

Domaine Huet 2019s

Two 97-point Chenins to last a lifetime, or at least until 2070

Domaine Huet in Vouvray is a world icon for pure, mineral-style Chenin Blancs. The praise for Huet's 2019s abound. After the great 2018s, 2019 was sunnier and drier, yet another terrific vintage in the Loire. Stephan Reinhardt from Wine Advocate wrote that the 2019s 'are the finest, purest, most delicate yet also intense Vouvrays I have had from Huet in recent years'. Antonio Galloni from Vinous agreed, saying he 'was blown away by the [2019 Huet] wines'.

Both the 2019 Huet Le Mont Demi-Sec and Clos du Bourg Sec show incredible complexity, depth of flavour and finesse, underlined by mineral tension, pure-fruited vibrancy and a moreish, saline finish. While they are hard to resist right now, they promise near-unparalleled longevity – up to 2070!

Outside of South Africa, some of the best Chenin Blancs hail from the Loire Valley, with Vouvray arguably the world's Chenin Blanc capital. The chalky soils produce some of the longest-ageing wines in the world. Established in 1928 and farmed biodynamically since 1990, Huet owns 3 of the best vineyards in the appellation – Le Haut-Lieu, Clos du Bourg and Le Mont. Le Haut-Lieu spans 10ha and is the original Huet vineyard purchased in 1928. After that, the 8ha Le Mont parcel followed in 1957 and the final 6ha Clos du Bourg vineyard in 1963. These produce wines with varying degrees of sweetness depending on the vintage.
