I’m often asked to recommend wines to people, and it seems that one of their favorite questions is, “what is the best wine in the world”?
There are of course an infinite number of answers to that question, but one of the best wines in the world, and certainly one of the greatest wine values on the planet, has to be the wine of Huet.
Made from Chenin Blanc in the Loire Valley, Huet produces a full range of Vouvray from bone dry to unctuously sweet, as well a superb value sparkler, though the sweet wines are what Huet is best known for.
These are wines that are nearly immortal, and not in the sense that they last, but rather because they endure, gaining unbeatable complexity and depth with age. This Vouvray, a selection from a specific vineyard, is packed with sweet yet vibrant fruit and accented with sweet almond and vanilla tones. It’s fabulous today but will be peaking when our grandchildren start drinking!
