Info

Unlike the other two sites Le Haut-Lieu and Clos de Bourg of Domaine Huet, Le Mont offers flint as a base. What all three vineyards have in common is the loamy subsoil. Le Mont is exposed to the south and extends over nine hectares.
Flint, also known as silex, is one of the Loire's unique selling points, providing excellent conditions for both Chenin blanc and Sauvignon blanc.

Color

Bright golden yellow, light reflexes

Nose

The first nose seems shy vineyard peach paired with lemon zest. A discreetly ethereal tone suggests eucalyptus. Above all, a stony component dominates, which also spreads unhindered with increasing oxygenation. In the further course some grapefruit develops as well as slightly smoky hints.

Palate

Subtle and linear, Le Mont opens a haptic firework. A delicate acid construct hits the nerve (of the time) precisely like a laser. Elegant and juicy, but with reverent restraint, it reveals its great potential. The citrus flavors from the nose emerge again, now paired with bitter tones. A delicate tannin makes its presence felt, allowing Le Mont to grow bigger and bigger in mouth-filling fashion. The flinty minerality does not come across as sparse as its neighboring sites on limestone, but more punchy. At the same time, to my great pleasure, it seems lemony-salty.
This wine still leaves a lot to be expected.
