Tasting note from from 07.11.2020, Copyright Marian Henß


Above the estate's tuffeau caves on the first Vouvray plateau on a southern exposure, Le Mont is one of the most appreciated vineyards in the appellation, known for its history and long-lived wines.

Nine hectares of pebbly flint soil and deep green clay provide a unique expression of the Chenin Blanc variety. Its terroir brings out intensity and minerality as well as a refined structure supported by a beautiful acidity.


Sparkling golden yellow


What a revelation. A cornucopia of most different flavours pours itself here to the inclined epicure. Acacia honey and fruit bread. A little clove, saffron and light tobacco. Dried apricots and tarte tatin. Multifaceted flavors that seem never-ending. White pepper and fully ripe yellow stone fruit. Candied pineapple and dried herbs. Earthy, mushroomy notes also develop as the temperature rises, leaving a touch of Alba truffle.


The 2002 Le Mont Moelleux is surprisingly cool and juicy. The multiple aromas of the nose come out perfectly. The order is arbitrary. True palate ping-pong. The sweetness is present but not overbearing. The minerality comes through beautifully and is helped by the acidity. The acidity takes on a crucial role in delivering elegance, life, freshness and drinkability to this wine. Sweetness and acidity once again complement each other congenially. The aroma lingers on the palate for a long time. The wine never seems heavy, but light-footed and playful. The sweetness escalates into a marvellous melting. After close to 20 years, it doesn't seem tired in the least. This is just beginning to be really fun.
