John Gilman: "The 2017 Sec bottling from the Le Mont vineyard is another gem from Domaine Huët.
The bouquet is bright, pure and nascently complex, offering up scents of lemon, apple, quince,
bee pollen, chalky soil tones and a topnote of spring flowers. On the palate the wine is deep, fullbodied
and more closed in personality than the Le Haut Lieu Sec, with a bit of the backend
dustiness of shutdown young Vouvray already starting to throw its weight around, but with
excellent depth at the core and impressive focus. The finish is long, beautifully balanced and
intensely flavored, with great energy and grip. This is dynamite wine in the making but unlike
the Le Haut Lieu Sec, I would be tempted to tuck this away in the cellar right away and not drink
any bottles during its first couple of years, as I have the sense that this is going to shut down
quite briskly and it will be pointless to waste bottles early on, particularly given how much
potential there is here for down the road! 2028-2060+. 94."
