Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec 2019
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Vouvray|
Elegant yet expressive and supercomplex, with cooked quince, mirabelle plum and yellow apple notes, plus hints of ruby red grapefruit, the acidity and bitterness balanced by the suggestion of sweetness. Vibrant and unctuous, with the sweet edge emerging midpalate and extending on the mineral-infused finish, which is long, with lovely tension and cut. A very focused, harmonious and pure white. Best from 2022 through 2036.
The 2019 Demi-Sec Le Mont is a gorgeous expression of this site. In the Demi-Sec style, Le Mont naturally gains in volume and resonance, but it also has much more pronounced earthy, mineral inflections. Apricot, baked pear, marzipan, chamomile and lemon confit build into the bright, creamy finish. The 2019 is such a classy wine.
