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.

 

“Smooth, round & very elegant, with great finesse & balance, this is a a very piquant & salty moelleux with a persistent & aromatic, yet purely mineral & tension-filled finish. The 2009 is very stimulating also due to the delicate yet firm tannins. This is an age-worthy Chenin.”

95+ points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, Oct 2016

 

“This wine is showing very overt aromas and flavours of extremely ripe tropical fruit alongside notes of toffee apples, nectarines and jasmine.. There’s lovely evolution on the long, textured, autumnal palate, and while the acidity feels hidden it manages to balance the heady sweetness.”
