Domaine Huet, l'Echansonne, is a small winery in the Vouvray appellation, near Tours, in the centre of the Loire Valley. The winery makes primarily dry to very sweet white wines from the much underrated grape variety chenin blanc. They also make some sparkling wine. the winery is run since many years by the brilliant Noel Pinguet. Many years ago he took the winery on to the route to biodynamic wine growing and winemaking (a specialised form of organic agriculture).
The winery is located in the small village of Vouvray. In the long underground corridors, cut out of the soft tuffeau calcareous rock the wine is fermented in stainless steel tanks or in barrels. There are thousands and thousands of bottles, stacked in enormous piles, with aging wines.
The vineyards are located around the village. There are several different place names, Haut-Lieu and Le Mont are the best known.
