Vineyard: Purchased in 1957, Le Mont lies on the esteemed Premiere Côte. With less clay and more stone than Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont yields young wines of intense minerality. Size: 8 hectares Soil: Clay has a green tinge, and ample stone and silica present. Viticulture: All grapes harvest by hand, which enables picking by successive tries - each tri being a separate pass by the workers through the vineyard, ensuring only the best bunches of ripest (or even botrytised) grapes. Noel Pinguet was one of the first French vignerons to adopt biodynamic viticulture and credit biodynamics with enhancing the personalities of the estate's terroirs. Vinification: Undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in large, old oak demi-muids as well as stainless steel vats. There is no encouragement of the malolactic fermentation, thus many Huet wines remain rich in malic acid, a character that brings an age-worthiness to the wines Aging: Aged in large demi-muids Production: 2,000 cases Notes: Le Mont wines are often the estate's most reticent, but develop the strongest perfume with age. Mineral-driven with a crystalline purity, this is the precision we've come to rely on with Le Mont.
The 2017 Vouvray Le Mont Sec displays an intense golden-yellow color and a discreet, refreshingly pure, slightly flinty and reductive nose with chalk and ripe lemon notes. Lush, precise and piquant on the palate, with ripe, concentrated fruit and crystalline structure, this is a dense, smooth, beautifully balanced, very long, refined and rather linear Vouvray with fine, dusty/chalky tannins, concentrated lemon juice and lingering, highly stimulating acidity. This is a long-distance runner with great expression and finesse. Tasted in March 2019.
