2017 Domaine Huet Vouvray Petillant Brut

Domaine Huet

Vouvray, Loire Valley


Only the best grower Champagnes have the kind of interest, sense of place and attention to detail offered by this sparkling wine. Bottled at a low-pressure of 2.5/3 atmospheres (most Champagnes are between five and six), this wine has a more delicate fizz than most. The fruit is all estate-grown (certified biodynamic) and comes from the youngest vines. Crafted in a hybrid méthode ancestrale style (only natural sugar in the must was used for the second fermentation) it’s a wine that is made in years that favour dry wine production.

A pinch lighter on the palate than the powerful 2015, it was disgorged in October 2020 following 36 months on lees in the Huet cellars and has just over 1g/L residual sugar (the wine is dosed with the 2017 Le Haut-Lieu Demi-Sec). To quote sparkling wine authority Peter Liem on the style, “...it’s a magical, intensely expressive wine, and ridiculously inexpensive for the quality”.
