Loire Royalty - Stand Alone Petillant:
2010 Huet Petillant

Posted by Joe Salamone

When it comes to sparkling wine outside Champagne, few wines are as coveted as Huet’s Petillant.

Huet is a master of Chenin. Even his basic Petillant can rival sparkling wines at twice the price.

We look forward to Huet’s Petillant every vintage, but the 2010 really blew us away. The minerality, cut, and overall sense of completeness is really impressive. This is the first vintage we've offered since the 2002, and it's one of the strongest editions we can remember.

2010 was a beautifully balanced, classic vintage in the Loire, and Huet nailed it. Top-to-bottom, their 2010’s are destined for greatness.The 2010 Petillant boasts a mineral-drenched elegance and energy that really elevates it to the next level.

We love Huet’s Petillant for its chalky, textured minerality, and the complex palate of spice, stone and orchard fruits that it offers. But most of all, we love it for its sheer deliciousness and drinkability. This is a wine that is hard to put down.

In 2010, Huet's Petillant flaunts a powerful mineral streak and a polished, lengthy finish. It's incredibly clear and balanced with a fine core of acidity. The 2010 has all the markings of an important, long-lived vintage.

Few sparkling wines under $30 can transform in the cellar the way Huet’s Petillant can. This is a wine that becomes even more captivating and fascinating with 5, 10, 20 years of age, or even more.
