*#6 on the Top 100 Wines of 2017* This tilts toward the flattering side of off-dry, showing a plump feel to the core of creamed pear, white peach and yellow apple fruit. Lovely verbena, honeysuckle and mineral accents keep this balanced and driven, with a long finish that lets the fruit echo. Drink now through 2032. (JM)
Pebbly silex and green clay is probably the most exciting soil for the off-dry style of Huet's Le Mont Chenin Blanc. The 2016 Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec is a very good example. It opens with a clear, precise and smoky nose of crushed stones whereas the tropical fruit aromas remain discreet in the background. On the palate, this is an enormously pure, salty-piquant and delicate Vouvray of remarkable class and finesse. The wine has intensity, tension, lingering mineral expression and a stimulatingly pure, finessed and salty finish. Great length. This is not a big wine but a gorgeous one with a long life ahead. (SR)
RS 20 g/l. Relatively closed in comparison with the other Huet Demi-Secs. Waxy texture, but not at all overweight. Oily character on the finish and supreme concentration on the length. (17.5/20 points) (RH)
