The 2009 Vouvray Pétillant Réserve is dry and bracing. A wine of substance and power, the 2009 has a lot to offer. Today, I especially admire its breadth. Yellow orchard fruits, plum, dried flowers and chamomile abound, but the 2009 remains a wine endowed with tremendous palate presence. It is very much a wine for the dinner table.

Domaine Huet is arguably Vouvray's most famous and greatest Domaine and is really, one of the greatest wine estates in the world. So, it might come as a surprise to some to find out that this estate was only founded in 1928 by the Huet family, Victor, and son, Gaston. Today the estate is under new management, but the devotion to the production of world class Chenin based wines remains unchanged. The estate vineyard holdings are composed of three main sites: Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont and Le Clos du Bourg. In 1988 each of these sites was converted biodynamic viticulture. The range and style of wines produced by the estate varies from year to year and each vineyard site produces wines different from one another. These are wines destined for long life in the cellar. They really require at least a decade in the cellar to be fully enjoyed.
