Vintage Notes by Wine Advocate 5/2019: "2018 brought 'grapes of great purity and richness. Rarely has nature been so generous both in the quantity of grapes and in the quality of the wine,' says the domaine’s the vintage report, summarizing a harvest that took place under 'idyllic conditions' toward the end of the season...Although the 2018s already taste beautiful, these wines can be cellared for decades. There is no lack of freshness nor of purity, and the body weight is perfectly balanced."
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.
