Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux
- Vouvray, Loire, France
"Huet Vouvrays can be some of the greatest wines in the world” Jancis Robinson Gaston Huet is a superstar of Vouvray winemaking, and from dry to sweet styles, he coaxes magic from the Chenin Blanc grape. When young, their wines are thrilling and weighty, when mature they are wonderous. As the Loire is so underrated compared with Bordeaux and Burgundy, prices are sensible, representing incredible value for money in the world of fine wine. The Le Mont Moelleux is exceptional and has a long life to come. Rich texture leads in to a massive wave of green apple and spice. It is supported by minerality, freshness and smokey, savoury inflections. This is a wine with sweetness but if you tasted blind you would be forgiven for assuming it nearly dry the balance is so impressive.
