100% Chenin Blanc
Le Mont has been recognised since the 15th Century as being one of the most distinguished sites in the appellation. The terroir is greenish tinged clay soils flecked with perrons, fist-sized pebbles of flint. The soil here is more profound and the vines need to delve deeper to access the honeycomb coloured tuffeau below.
Regardless of the style of wine produced, Le Mont is usually the last vineyard to be picked, the later ripening is reflected in the maturation of the wines as they are usually the last to develop.
“This has the structure and bitter-edged minerality to carry its weight and ripeness, with beeswax and white tea notes that overlay crunchy orchard fruit and pink grapefruit with peppery spice notes woven in. A lot of savory detail and acidity makes this superbalanced and very food-friendly.” Wine Spectator
