Tasting notes: Huet's Vouvray Petillant is a gently sparkling style of Chenin Blanc, created using the Ancestral Method. With this method, the wine finishes its primary fermentation in the bottle, creating a light and softer fizz than the Traditional Method of Champagne. This wine is complex and layered with aromas of ripe stone fruit, sweet citrus, honeysuckle, and pollen. The palate is flavorful and broad textured, featuring fine and persistent bubbles around a core of fruit and minerality. Enjoy this beautiful bubbly with Korean fried chicken wings or baked brie with fruit compote and of course creamy cheeses like camembert or even a young gruyere.
Producer: Since its founding in 1928, Vouvray’s Domaine Huet has been the standard-bearer for great, age-worthy Chenin Blanc. And to this day, year after year, the estate produces some of the world’s most compelling white wines—and in a remarkable range that spans sparkling, dry, semi-dry, and breathtaking dessert styles.
Vineyard and Winemaking: Today, Domaine Huet may be making its most consistently great wines. As was one of the earliest adopters of biodynamic practices, and with years of experience working with the appellation's greatest terroirs, winemaker Jean-Bernard Berthome and his team are achieving a fascinating level of transparency, purity, and knife-edged balance in the wines. This wine was bottled before primary fermentation is finished, resulting in a lower pressure sparkling wine - pétillant - because only a portion of the fermentation occurs inside the bottle.
