Purchased in 1957, Le Mont lies on the esteemed Premiere Côte. With less clay and more stone than Le Haut-Lieu, Le Mont yields young wines of intense minerality. The wines are the estate's most reticent, but develop the strongest perfume with age. Biodynamically farmed vineyards. All grapes harvested by hand with several successive passes in the vineyard to pick optimally ripe, late-harvested grapes. Despite the name, the 1er Trie is not always the first pick, but actually a selection of the best bunches harvested for the Moelleux which are kept separate and vinified on their own. Undergoes temperature-controlled fermentation in large, old oak demi-muids as well as stainless steel vats. There is no encouragement of the malolactic fermentation, thus many Huet wines remain rich in malic acid, a character that brings an age-worthiness to the wines.

A stunning show of fruit and precision. Drink now through 2040. 160 cases made.
