Type: Dessert Wine
Vintage: 2015

The soil in Huet’s Le Mont vineyard is very pebbly, and consists mainly of green-coloured clay and silica. The wines produced in this vineyard are traditionally elegant and poised.

 

Moelleux (sweet) wines have always held a special place at Domaine Huet. They represent quality and and true cellar potential. With time, Le Mont Moelleux will develop into a beautiful, complex, ethereal wine. Rich and elegant, this is wine to revel in, keep, and share.

 

“The apricot/golden coloured 2015 Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux shows a very intense, elegant and also subtle bouquet of ripe fruit intermixed with flinty aromas. Dense, piquant and concentrated on the palate, this is a great and tension-filled Chenin with grip and persistence, but also great finesse and elegance. This is a highly complex and energetic, but also light-footed and stimulating wine with lots of mouthwatering salinity. A fascinating Chenin with great aging potential.”
