Le Mont provides the perfect middle ground between Le Haut-Lieu and Clos du Bourg in this vintage. Complex, piercing and also remarkably open. This doesn?t have the same level of hidden complexity as the Haut-Lieu but was probably the dry wine of the tasting. Incredibly vivid and pure, pithy citrus and crunchy green apple are all interwoven with a touch of savoury spice and tingling, electric acidity. Le Mont is a special vineyard and this is it at its very best.
Reviews & Scores
Huet's 2014 Vouvray Le Mont Sec is the other wine that wine lovers should buy and store, especially those with a heart for crystalline and extremely mineral wines. If Clos du Bourg is like something between Chablis and Riesling, Le Mont is comparable with Sancerre from Silex soils, but again also dry Riesling from the bedrock parts of Lower Austria (along the Danube river). Its aroma on the nose intertwines white and green fruits like apples and lemons with coolish flint stone, spicy and floral aromas in a subtly intense, very intriguing and complex way. There is a great purity and linearity on the complex and elegant, intense and persistent palate, but also some ripe fruit flavors that remind not just of crystalline Riesling but also aromatic wines from grape varieties such as Muscat or Sauvignon Blanc. This is a powerful and intense but much more finesse-full, purely mineral and...
highly elegant wine with a beautiful touch of sweetness (say roundness) and lovely citrus flavors. This is the most elegant and delicate Chenin of Huet's dry trio and its aromatic length, energy, salinity and spell-binding finesse is truly unrivaled. This is simply great Chenin Blanc and Huet's hallmark wine of the vintage. Chapeau!
