#15 - Wine Spectator's Top 100 of 2019
Revealing the soul of a single varietal rooted in the tufa, the semi-dry vibrates and resonates in the mouth like a taste echo, the natural sugar and acidity of Chenin blending harmoniously. Aerial and complex, it appreciates young on the fruit but is also gradually revealed to those who know how to wait.
This elegant white shows pedigree, featuring wonderful harmony and great complexity, with persimmon and quince flavors, while cardamom, coriander and star anise notes glide along the edges. The acidity gives this power, providing balance, but also incredible energy that runs throughout. Very long and inviting. Best from 2020 through 2038. 1,000 cases made.
From green clay and pebbly silex soils, the 2018 Vouvray Le Mont Demi-Sec offers a clear, intense but elegant and sublime nose that intermixes ripe fruit and ginger aromas with spicy-flinty notes. Very well articulated and precise on the nose, it is lush and intense on the palate, with a good structure and complex finish. This is a highly promising Vouvray whose combination of 14% alcohol and unfermented sugar asks for a couple of years of cellar aging. The finish is salty, pure, tight and vibrantly fresh. A gorgeous, highly energetic wine. Tasted in May 2019.
