S.A. Huët Vouvray Sec le Mont 2016

Member Review by dynowine:

Light nose of hints of lemon and cooling spice and vineyard dirt. Tame, round, balanced, and elegant in the mouth, with mineral and ripe lemon. Short to medium finish. Off dry to dry. Body light to medium, acid medium minus.

Very steely, with a dry mineral flavor. Hints of peaches and a herbal almost thyme nuance. Very granitic with a finish a little tequila-esque (limes and salt)

awesome. had it at terroir wine bar in SF last night. let's see how much i can recall -- gorgeous, complex nose of lemon-lime citrus, green apple, mineral, and floral notes; a light, yet compelling palate highlighted by searing, but not overpowering and well integrated acidity that carries through for a long, elegant finish. -- the best chenin i've ever had. powerful, complex, nuaced...fantastic!

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

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

Stone fruits and floral note blend in this balanced, textured white. This is an impressive, concentrated wine with promise to stand the test of time.

A dry Vouvray that's as fresh as they come since it has just recently been released. Great with honey and apricots and mineral on the palate. Full of balance and finesse that will settle in bottle nicely for years to come.

The vineyard is a true "Clos" meaning walled vineyard dating back to the 7th century. The Vouvray has an outstanding expressive nose with floral and honey aromas that will captivate you, while underlying minerality will keep you intrigued.

This off-dry Chenin Blanc from top producer of Vouvray, Domaine Huet, has an outstanding, expressive nose with floral and honey aromas that will captivate you, while underlying minerality will keep you intrigued.
