Description
 
Maison Huet has been a leading force in the Vouvray appellation for quite some time now. Founded in 1928, the estate now covers 35 hectares, which are divided up between three properties: Le Mont, Le Haut-Lieu and Le Clos du Bourg--throughout the region that have been farmed in the biodynamic method since 1990. These wines are stunning and are worth being in your cellar. Legends in the making here! Stretching 9 hectares Le Haut-Lieu provides extremely deep limestone and brown clay soils. Due to the rich heavy soils the wines from this site tend to have a richer rounder character, deep nuances of stone fruit and finish off with a mouthwatering, juicy finish.

The yellow-golden colored 1995 Vouvray le Mont Moelleux is super clear and piquant on the spicy/peppery flavored nose with its perfectly ripe and elegant, perfectly balanced fruit. It has the same balance on the palate that exhibits the rich sweetness and the piquant and endlessly salty Le Mont terroir. Except for the Scharzhofberg and other Wiltingen terroirs with red slate, I don't know of any terroir that absorbs the sweetness as much as the Mont. Add alcohol, richness and tannins, more charming stone fruits and autumn instead of spring, and you come closer to Chenin from Vouvray's Le Mont terroir than to Riesling from the Saar's greatest terroir. The elegance and balance as well as the vitality and tension are gorgeous here. The further aging potential should be 20, probably even more years. Wine Advocate 94
