Crafted only in very tiny quantities (just 3000 bottles in 2016) and when conditions allow from top quality berries affected by noble rot. Le Mont’s quintessential flinty grace and poise is in abundance here. Sweet, complex and elegantly fresh; there is a core of wild jasmine, honeysuckle, orange blossom rounded by softly caramelised apple and pear. The texture is full and complete; a sinewy, energetic quality combines with richness from the botrytis playing perfect harmony to crisp, spiced citrus notes.
RS 92 g/l. Floral, supercharged fruit with lemon tart and apple crumble flavours. Extravagant and fresh and a relentless finish of baked apple, honey and sweet spices. 12%.
