Domaine Huet Le Mont Demi-Sec Vouvray 2019
From iconic French winery Domaine Huet, it doesn't get much better than this Domaine Huet Le Mont Demi-Sec Vouvray. Think salads, grilled chicken, salmon burgers, semi-spicy pad thai, and lots more. It tastes even better when savored on a patio, deck, balcony or boat...
Robert Parker, Jr.'s Wine Advocate: "As readers know, I have been very enthusiastic about the generous 2018 series from Domaine Huet. The 2019 vintage, which was as sunny as 2018 but much drier, is completely different in style and yet is still another terrific vintage for the iconic Vouvray domain. Fans shouldn't miss the chance to buy some of the world's finest Chenin Blancs, which are still spectacularly moderate in price.
The 2019 Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec is clear, fresh, deep and complex yet pure, fine, elegant and perfectly interwoven on the nose, where notes of crushed flint stones, limestones and concentrated citrus fruit aromas and even iodine notes are revealed. Very elegant and refined on the palate, this is a round, juicy, seductively fruity yet firmly structured and piquant Le Mont whose sweetness is captured by fine tannins and a sustainably dense, vital and salty finish. The 2019 Demi-Sec is a great Chenin and the finer Le Mont of the two, and it is doubtlessly a long-distance runner that should be cellared for at least a decade even though it's hard to resist today. Impressive! Drink date: 2030-2070." Jul 2020
Jancis Robinson on Gaston Huet, the "father of Domaine Huet Vouvrays": He is "the most respected producer of Vouvray in the Loire." Aug 2013
Winery: "Purchased in 1957, Le Mont lies on the esteemed Premiere Cote. With less clay and more stone than Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont yields young wines of intense minerality. The wines are the estate's most reticent, but develop the strongest perfume with age. Size: 8 hectares."
