Domaine Huet, Le Haut Lieu, Demi-Sec, Vouvray AC, France, 2003, 12.5% abv.

Inspired by our visit to Huet in Vouvray, Loire Valley, France and the friendly and informative tasting and tour led by Johan Le Calonnec, we bought two bottles, one of which was the 2003 Haut Lieu.huet 1

Medium gold with a nose and palate of hay, ripe red and yellow apples, honey and lemony citrus, this moelleux wine has medium high acidity to balance the residual sugar perfectly, it’s at its height and drinking perfectly. If you have a bottle, drink now and do not hold.

WSET Outstanding, it was the best accompaniment to the strawberries, Comté cheese and fresh bread we found at the local markets.

When we got to the beaches of Normandy, this 11 year old wine was the one we opened in memory of the fallen Canadian soldiers who died at Juno Beach in June 1944.

These grapes can be grown, the wine produced and enjoyed – all because these men gave their lives.

    Dear Lindsay, thanks a lot for your interest about our wines, it was and will be always a pleasure to receive you on the Domaine Huet. I like your picture: “A votre santé, et à la mémoire des soldats canadiens et alliés tombés pour la Liberté, je lève aussi mon verre”. Johan
