Huet is the considered to be the master of Vouvray, creating wines that can age for decades. Le Mont is a hillside vineyard overlooking the Loire, creating a softer style wine. This Chenin Blanc shows notes exquisite aromas of honeysuckle flowers. The crisp acidity and minerality that contribute great structure to the wine. Drink with a light chill.

($30) Light yellow. Pungent citrus and orchard fruits on the nose, with hints of tarragon and smoky minerals. Concentrated lemon and orange flavors start off tight and gain flesh and depth with air, eventually showing a musky mango quality, along wit... Stephen Tanzer's IWC.

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points John Gilman (View From the Cellar): The bouquet offers up a fine blend of quince, hard chalky minerality, lemon peel, honeycomb and dried flowers... medium-full, long and almost imploded at the core, with great layers of depth waiting to unfold in the fullness of time, bright, snappy acids, superb focus and a very, very long... finish. 2020-2060.
