The sec (dry) wines of the Loire are considered to be a pure expression of the best of both Chenin Blanc and the terroir of the Vouvray region. At Domaine Huet, grapes are grown according to biodynamic principles, then harvested and meticulously sorted by hand. Each cuvée shows a precise expression of the Domaine’s soils.

The soil in Huet’s Le Mont vineyard is pebbly and consists mainly of green-coloured clay and silica. The wines produced in this vineyard are traditionally elegant and poised. Vinified in the tradition of the house, the pure, chiseled, mineral flint of the Le Mont vineyard comes through on the nose and the palate.

“Again, Huet’s 2019 Vouvray Le Mont Sec reflects the unique, south-facing nine-hectare vineyard with its pebbly flint (silex) and green clay soils wonderfully! Pure, fresh and flinty on the deep, intense yet also floral and herbal nose that represents a concentrated and firm white stone fruit aroma with lemon and grapefruit notes as well as fennel, anise and cumin hints. The bouquet gets darker and stonier with a lot of aeration (during days, to be honest). The leitmotif, though, remains the characteristic mix of aromatic fruit aromas with flint stone and volcanic basalt tones that, at this early stage and poured straight from the bottle, remind me of the Rieslings from Forst, Pfalz (Germany). In any case, this is like perfume on rocky stones! On the palate, Le Mont Sec is a rich, lush and round, very concentrated yet silky textured, elegant, vital and tightly structured 2019 with a powerful, intense and long finish with lingering salinity intertwined with tight, perhaps slightly dry tannins. I recommend cellaring this round yet tight and concentrated Chenin for a decade and then drinking it slowly over many years and with, hopefully, even better integrated tannins. Although only four wines were produced in 2019 (Le Mont is the only wine that was also produced as demi-sec, while the other two were only produced as sec) these are the finest, purest, most delicate yet also intense Vouvrays I have had from Huet in recent years.”
94+ points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate, July 2020

“The 2019 Sec Le Mont is precise and beautifully cut. A wine of laser-like focus, Le Mont dazzles with its purity. Citrus peel and floral accents are nicely lifted, but it is the wine’s energy that impresses most. Le Mont is a subtle wine that speaks softly, but what it has to say is priceless.”
