Le Haut Lieu is the historical, and largest, site of Domaine Huet. A bit more than 9 hectares, slightly higher on the plateau and further from the Loire, the vines are grown on a darker clay with some eolian sands. All the still wines at Huet are made the same way, the only difference being the picking, and the balance of the must. Aging happens mostly in larger, older barrels and sometimes partially in tanks, but always blended, to be bottled in April. Le Haut Lieu tends to give the earlier drinking version of the 3 sites, but the deeper clay soils impart great richness and ageability as well.
13.5% alcohol, 19 grams/liter RS, 4.44 g/l total acidity, pH 3.16
