Huet Vouvray le Mont Sec 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): ...The beautiful and youthful nose jumps from the glass in a mlange of quince, tart pear, gentle notes of honeycomb, a touch of orange zest, pink grapefruit, beautifully complex soil tones and white flowers in the upper register. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied and rock solid at the core, with ripe acids, laser-like focus and stunning length and grip on the youthful and dancing finish... 2020-2075+. (Jan/Feb 2012)

Dry and racy, with a very chiseled feel to the powdered ginger, fig and pear flavors, with a bracing edge on the finish. Still rather tightly drawn now, this should unfurl nicely with some cellaring. Best from 2013 through 2018. -JM Wine Spectator. A Chenin Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2010 Haut Lieu (Gaston Huet), Domaine le Vouvray le Mont Sec 750ml

The 2010 Le Mont Sec is a great classic in the making, as this vintage has produced about as stunning a young group of dry Vouvray as I can ever recall issuing forth from the domaine. The beautiful and youthful nose jumps from the glass in a mélang... John Gilman. A Chenin Blanc wine from Loire Valley in France. 2010 Haut Lieu (Gaston Huet), Domaine le Vouvray le Mont Sec 750ml
