As one of the leading producers in the Vouvray region of the Loire Valley, Domaine Huet is known and praised for its wide range of wines made from the Chenin Blanc grape. Due to the richness and concentration of the wines they have received acclaim for their ageability. The domaine was founded in 1928 by a Parisian bistro owner named Victor Huet, but at the time was called Le Haut-Lieu. With the help of his son, Gaston, Victor was able to devote himself to creating superb quality that is now what has made the domaine a great success. The three vineyards in Domaine Huet gets its fruit from are Le Haut-Lieu, comprised of heavier brown clay, Clos du Bourg, made up of shallow clay-limestone soils, and Le Mont, consisting of pebbly clay and silica. Each of these three vineyards impart a different signature into the wine to achieve a captivating level of transparency and purity meant to be enjoyed for years to come.
