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. The palate is round and textured with a palpable sweetness but great grip and drive. Mineral and precise this is a fantastic example of what Huet can produce from this top terroir. A layered and very complex Vouvray in 2014, quantities were small from Le Mont but this is a top Demi-Sec.
