The bright acidity of Le Mont Demi-Sec really shows itself in 2020, producing a clean, racy style. There's a welcoming aspect to this wine with its 20 grams of residual sugar, but the flint in this vineyard keeps it strict and provides that taut line. It is super smart, balanced and really joyful now and will continue to provide pleasure for decades. Wait. Or don't. (Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous, September 2022)

Shared with an old friend at Cranes DC. Paired with Hamachi crudo, pineapple kombucha etc.
Shows its age with more savory, mineral notes and a sharpish, Sherry-like oxidative undertone. Noticable sweetness on palate entry but then the acid perks up and drives through the finish. A great choice to pair with a great meal.

Tonight it was time to open my 2007 Domaine Huet Le Mont Demi-Sec Vouvray.

On the nose there is peach, apricot, persimmon, baked apple, lime, honeydew melon, jasmine and brioche.

On the palate we have wonderful notes of peach, honeysuckle, honeycomb, ripe yellow apple, lime, ginger and minerals.

This wine is medium bodied with a viscous mouthcoating mouthfeel and with this age still has mouthwatering medium + acidity that moves smoothly into a medium+ to long peach lemon mineral finish. What a treat. I thought this may be past its prime but no it is still wonderful. Just goes to show you the Loire Chenin Blanc age gracefully. Happy hump day and enjoy the end of the week. Stay safe and continued health. Nostrovia! 🥂🥂🥂🥂

Slightly oxidative. But enough white stone fruit and acidity and complexity time make this just wonderful.

The 2017 Le Mont Demi Sec is youthful and will be a keeper for the long run, yet its so enchanting already. Near 20 g/ sugar has been left behind and acts as a gentle stroke of sweetness followed by its fresh acidity embedded into its ripe and honey tinged, waxy profile that keeps on pushing and evolving all the way down to the mother rock.

Young but classically structured and should be great in 5-10 years. Hope I have more!
