Le Mont Vineyard: For many insiders, the argument over Vouvray’s greatest vineyard comes down to two sites: Le Mont and Clos du Bourg. Indisputably a grand cru vineyard, Le Mont (7-8 HA) enjoys a choice site on the Première Côte (or "first slope"). With less clay and more stone than Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont yields young wines of intense minerality that age into wines of great length and finesse. Biodynamic since 1993. The domaine purchased Le Mont in 1957.
