Delightful interplay of citrus acidity and residual sugar. Very discrete nose. Palate is very expressive by contrast with honey, lemon, white grapefruit, salty notes. I would drink up as there is a touch of oxidization beginning. A stunning Chenin Blanc and looks like from a great vintage.
High marks to this wine for its subtleness. It took a bit of coaxing to get this wine to taste like anything. I recommend decanting it first. It showed beautiful creamy citrus notes (mostly lemon). Great purity and mouth feel. A real joy.

(Domaine Huet Vouvray Le Mont Sec) Residual sugar 9 g/l, alcohol 13.2%. A polished and sweeter feel to the fruit here, gentle with a beautiful purity to it. There is more substance on the palate though; although it still maintains an elegant balance it has a substantial fruit character with great substance and structure too it as well. It is perhaps the most severe of the three sec cuvées, although I think Clos du Bourg comes pretty close in that regard. Certainly showing bags of structure and citrusy acidity on the palate, so from that point of view it certainly is the least approachable.
