Intense honeyed quince, ripe even now. Spicy ripe pear with a hint of mixed peel. Complex and aromatic at the same time. On the palate, so rich it is almost a little tropical – pineapple – but still with the wonderful intense freshness of Chenin in a great vintage; mandarin and dried pear on the finish. (JH)

The apricot/golden colored 2015 Vouvray Le Mont Moelleux shows a very intense, elegant and also subtle bouquet of ripe fruit intermixed with flinty aromas. Dense, piquant and concentrated on the palate, this is a great and tension-filled Chenin with grip and persistence, but also great finesse and elegance. This is a highly complex and energetic, but also light-footed and stimulating wine with lots of mouthwatering salinity. A fascinating Chenin with great aging potential.
