Outside the Huet Cellars

Outside the ancient Domaine Huet Cellars in Vouvray

In the fourth of our Loire Valley series we head deep into the chalk hillside cellars of the venerable Domaine Huet, Vouvray.

Domaine Huet’s very special wines have always had a very special place in my heart, not to mention my olfactory memory. Ever since I was a young aspiring Sommelier in Edinburgh their wines have utterly fascinated me.

I was first introduced to their marvels by the late James Sankey, my wine mentor for so many of my formative years. Later on my journey of vinous discovery I had the fortitude of working alongside esteemed wine merchant Zubair Mohamed of Raeburn Fine Wine. It was when working with Zubair and assisting with a private tasting of Huet I was given the opportunity to taste the 1932.

That particular wine has stuck in my memory ever since it first crossed my palate.

And so it was with great pleasure I finally travelled into their chilly cellars…
