Crafted only in very tiny quantities (just 3000 bottles in 2016) and when conditions allow from top quality berries affected by noble rot. Le Mont’s quintessential flinty grace and poise is in abundance here. Sweet, complex and elegantly fresh; there is a core of wild jasmine, honeysuckle, orange blossom rounded by softly caramelised apple and pear. The texture is full and complete; a sinewy, energetic quality combines with richness from the botrytis playing perfect harmony to crisp, spiced citrus notes.
Producer Information: Domaine Huet
Few producers can claim a level of influence to almost identify with their appellation – one of those is Domaine Huet. This iconic estate has been one of the standard-bearers of Vouvray since 1928. A true pioneer, Gaston Huet was one of the first vignerons to adopt biodynamic practices and to focus on single-vineyard bottlings. Remaining true to the philosophy of the founders, Sarah Hwang and Jean-Bertrand Berthomé continue to craft superbly long-lived Chenin Blanc from their three vineyards. From lively sparkling to unctuous Moelleux, the Domaine Huet range is the most extraordinary way to venture into Vouvray.
