Tasting Notes

As with the dry wines Le Mont seems a little more open and opulent than the Clos du Bourg. The nose has more expression and lift with delicate ginger notes and riper pear and quince.

A layered and very complex Vouvray in 2014, quantities were small from Le Mont but this is a top Demi-Sec.

Reviews & Scores

Piquant hints of orange rind and a bit of fresh orange juiciness are outgunned in the finish by the onslaught of caramelized tropical fruit concentrate.
