Le Mont is often the most elegant of Huet's wines in its youth, and this 2005 is no exception. Succulent and refined, it takes time to open, slowly unfolding with vibrant apple, Asian pear and apricot flavors, strikingly balanced and pure.
Plump and juicy, with stone fruit, brown spice, humus, powdered ginger and acacia notes that run through the bright, well-defined finish, where the acidity kicks in. Drink now through 2018. 980 cases made.
The 2005 Vouvray Demi-Sec Le Mont smells of pink grapefruit and orange blossom, quince and honeysuckle, offers only subtle sweetness for all of its eighteen grams residual sugar, and persists on the palate with honey, quince and white currant jelly, and citrus zest pungency, underlain by relatively austere stoniness. Refined, elegant and restrained.
Almonds and a hint of sulphur. Lots of matière here - really dense and vibrant. Races away with a little sweetness evident. Mouthfilling. Very long.
