Appearance: bright mid yellow tone
Aroma: expressive characters with clean and refreshing lime nose 
Palate: blessing acidity with minerality are its key complexity, mouthfeel of fig and pear flavours are on the cutting edge, honey-like sweet can be found lightly in the background, medium in the body, so pure and so fresh.

This was not the first time I had tried this amazing chenin blanc based still white wine from Domaine Huet. I recall that it was mid 2012 when I first came across this fabulous wine which stunned me instantly. Predominantly, this gorgeous creation of Domaine Huet at Le Mont site can be enjoyable now and can also be cellared for up to a decade to unveil its beauty. If you by chance come across this Le Mont Sec 2010 by Domaine Huet, do hesitate yourself to stock some in your cellar. It should go pretty well with fish and chicken dishes. I personally love to have it with sushi. Such a flavourful wine. Raise many glasses then!!!!!
