Domaine Fouet

In short measure, this domaine has become a blue-chip with a succession of irresistibly pure and generous wines which demonstrate all the fruity charm that the Loire can offer. A classic father-and-son operation, with dad tending (organically, of course) to the vineyards, and young Julien making the wines and selling them. We have steadily increased our range of selections as the domaine’s exceptional quality becomes recognized and as we find more and more wines to our taste.

Pending tasting notes

Dom. Fouet 2017 Saumur Champigny “L’Amarante”

2017 has the difficult task of following two banner vintages for Loire reds, but Julien rises to the occasion with his newly-named wine. This is a silky, sweetly-fruited wine that nods to Beaujolais in its seamless texture and piquant acidity. A little lighter, to be sure, but just as delicious.

Dom. Fouet N.V. Crémant de Loire

(80% Chenin Blanc, 20% Cabernet Franc) This ravishing sparkler radiates finesse, from the tiny mousse that it sports, through the first whiff of its unmistakably Chenin honeysuckle notes to the bracingly pure palate and its extended finish. Importantly, it has the kind of harmony that derives from extended aging on the lees. A worthy alternative to champagne.

Dom. Fouet N.V. Crémant de Loire Cuvée St. Cyr (Vieilles Vignes)

This ravishing sparkler radiates finesse, from the tiny mousse that it sports, through the first whiff of its unmistakably Chenin honeysuckle notes to the bracingly pure palate and its extended finish. Importantly, it has the kind of harmony that derives from extended aging on the lees. A worthy alternative to champagne.

Dom. Fouet N.V. Crémant de Loire Rosé

(100% Cabernet Franc) With Champagne Rosé costing ever-more-ridiculous sums, it is a pleasure to discover such a compelling escape as this. Stylish, Loire-ish and dry, this coral-colored gem has all the authenticity of its white counterpart but an added fruitiness appropriate to its hue. We never seem to buy enough.
