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%. Drink 2018-2024.
