Press / Wine Critic's Reviews
 
Notes from the Winemaker:

Le Mont is one of the treasures of the plateau of Vouvray both in the quality of the place and in the typicity that brings to the Chenin the soil of clay green to flint locally called "parrot". The mellows from this terroir express themselves on the minerality and on a "chiseled" structure often carried by beautiful acidities.

The 2009 was a perfect vintage for the development of sweet wines, a nice and long after-season allowing us to perform several sorts favorable to the concentration of sugars and acidity.


Ratings & Reviews

95+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"The golden-yellow 2009 Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux has a fascinating subtle and aromatic bouquet of perfectly ripe and gently stewed fruits intertwined with biscuit, confiture and caramel notes, as well as lemony flinty aromas. Smooth, round and very elegant, with great finesse and balance, this is a a very piquant and salty moelleux with a persistent and aromatic, yet purely mineral and tension-filled finish. The 2009 is very stimulating also due to the delicate yet firm tannins. This is an age-worthy Chenin that is only slowly starting to unfold its charms." - Stephan Reinhardt (28th Oct 2016)

94 Points - Wine Spectator Magazine:
"This wants to be lush, with a core of mango and green fig fruit, but the minerality, ginger blossom and melon rind notes harness it all. The long, pure finish has a lingering green tea note that echoes at the very end. Drink now through 2025. 1,700 cases made." – JM (May 31, 2011)
