WS: A beauty, with an inviting display of succulent yellow apple, green plum, pear, persimmon and quince flavors that ripples lengthily through the finish, while light verbena, ginger and honeysuckle notes dart around. A long green tea echo runs through the finish. Shows terrific range and purity, with the sweetness easily harnessed for balance.

History

Domaine Huet founded in 1928 by Victor Huet and his son Gaston today has thirty hectares of Chenin planted on three plots: Haut-Lieu, Mont and Clos du Bourg. The estate was one of the precursors of the biodynamic culture in the French vineyard. This method of cultivation which respects the soil, the plant and the environment, allows to develop the character of our wines and top reserve the authenticity of the soils
