Aromas of gooseberry, guava, grapefruit and melon, while the palate is balanced by fine acidity and fruit sweetness. A wine with great aromatic power.more
Le Mont is instantly mineral in nature; the lovely orchard scents are lifted by green pear flesh, and accented with a grippy citrus-pith. The palate has intense texture and flinty minerality which finishes with a very appealing hint of ripeness. This wine is all about texture and tension. Stunning now, this will no doubt unfurl over the next 3-5 years.
Perhaps less fruity than the Clos du Bourg, but just as full and fleshy on the palate. Ripe without being overblown, thanks to fine acidic structure. Perhaps needs a few years to open up. 13%.

Yellow with green hues; clean and bright. This wine particularly stands out for its great aromatic intensity, with marked hints of stone fruit (peaches) and white fruit (ripe apples and quinces) against a citrus background of lemon tree leaves. Big, flavoursome and fresh in the mouth, with a well-integrated acidity. Fruity and particularly persistent finish.
