Since its founding in 1928, Vouvray’s Domaine Huet has been the standard-bearer for great, age-worthy Chenin Blanc. And to this day, year after year, the estate produces some of the world’s most compelling white wines—and in a remarkable range that spans sparkling, dry, semi-dry, and breathtaking dessert styles.


Today, Domaine Huet may be making its most consistently great wines. As was one of the earliest adopters of biodynamic practices, and with years of experience working with the appellation's greatest terroirs, winemaker Jean-Bernard Berthome and his team are achieving a fascinating level of transparency, purity, and knife-edged balance in the wines. Le Mont wines are often the estate's most reticent, but develop the strongest perfume with age. Mineral-driven with a crystalline purity, this is the precision we've come to rely on with Le Mont.

A pristine dry beauty from the chenin blanc grape! Stunning nose of spring blossom, Yamanashi white peach and honeycomb. Super-focused and racy with excellent concentration, everything gelling beautifully at the precise and intensely mineral finish. From bio dynamically grown grapes. Drink or hold.
WA The Wine Advocate: 95 Points
The 2021 Vouvray Le Mont Sec opens with the classical flinty fruit aromas on the still discreet but again elegant and fascinating, unique nose that is crystal clear, precise, fresh, intense and aromatic, with concentrated quince and lemon aromas intermingled with chalky and even more saline notes. Crystalline, refined and elegant on the palate, this is a full-bodied, tight and complex Vouvray from green marls and silex soils. The wine is still tight and very tensioned, which is great to taste but challenging to drink at this early stage. The finish is pure, citrusy and very mineral, most of all salty and lemon fresh, with fine tannins and a firm, sustainable structure. 13% stated alcohol. Natural cork. Tasted in March 2023. Best After 2028
WS The Wine Spectator: 94 Points
A concentrated, multilayered wine that is richly styled yet bristling with racy energy, featuring juicy apple and creamed pear flavors marked by ginger, cinnamon and allspice accents, with a firming core of salty mineral. Delicious now, this will only improve with time in bottle.
