100% Chenin 

Vouvray, Loire France

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. The wines are the estate's most reticent, but develop the strongest perfume with age. 
SOIL
Clay has a green tinge, and there are ample stone and silica present.
VITICULTURE


Biodynamically farmed. All grapes harvested 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.
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. Moelleux cuvées typically have more than 30 g/l residual sugar
AGING
Aged in large demi-muid
