Victor Huët, is the identity behind the most famous Vouvray producer of all time, Domaine Huet. Due to injuries post WWI, he left Paris to retire in the beautiful countryside of Vouvray in the Loire Valley. There he bought his first vineyard, Le Haut-Lieu, which would be the first of many of his great sites. He and his son, Gaston, helped to continue the Huet legacy by incorporating wines made from two additional “Grand Cru” vineyards, Le Mont and Clos du Bourg. The Huet generation today carries on the tradition of excellence in several styles: sparkling, sec, demi-sec, and dessert wines.
Clos du Bourg is believed by many to be the greatest of all the Vouvray vineyards. This Chenin is a “Vouvray Sec,” the driest style of the domain coming from older vines. The wine goes to age between older barrels and in tanks. This wine stands apart from the rest due to its aromatic nose. You can keep this bottle or potentially for another 15 years.
