Light gold in the glass, this wine smells of wet stone, lemon zest, and rainwater. In the mouth rainwater, lemon zest, and deep wet chalkboard quality linger through a long finish. Sharp acidity and the slightly tannic quality of wet slate leave this wine a bit austere, but definitely tasty.
Domaine Huber-Verdereau was founded by Thiebault Huber in 1994, but originates from the 19th century, when the Verdereau family began to grow wine on their estate in Volnay.
Thiebault’s grandfather, Raoul Verdereau, developed the estate from 1928 to 1976, before sharing his properties between his two daughters. Thiebault’s parents, Monsieur and Madame Huber, inherited about three hectares, which they rented out until 1994, being neither winegrowers nor living in Burgundy. Their son, Thiebault Huber, the present manager, studied hotel business and the art of being a sommelier at the famous Hotel Catering School in Strasbourg.
In 1990, he chose to take over the family estate, with his cousin, grower Jean-Marc Bouley, after training for three years at the Wine School of Beaune. He established Domaine Huber-Verdereau, with the first harvest in 1994.
