The 2015 Vouvray Pétillant Brut displays an intense yellow color and opens with a deep and rich bouquet of perfectly ripe and juicy yellow fruits intertwined with rich brioche and vanilla as well as chalky aromas. Much fruitier than any Champagne. Full-bodied and rich yet bone dry and fresh, this is nevertheless a pure and refreshing sparkling wine that should be served for lunch or dinner rather than as an aperitif. Tightly structured, long and energetic. 12.5% alcohol.

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.
