Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 96
The rich and concentrated but still youthful 2020 Clos de Mosny has complex aromas of butter, honey and vanilla and is richly textured with a seamless balance. It has the potential to age for at least two decades. More than 30 years after starting from modest means, Jacky and Joëlle Blot have established the Domaine de la Taille aux Loups in Moutlouis as one of the great Loire domaines. Their son Jean-Philippe is now increasingly taking over the running of the domaine. Jacky’s passion is dry white Chenin vinified in barriques, with no residual sugar and no malolactic fermentation. Increasingly the accent is on single vineyard wines with their own character – wines of great purity that age brilliantly. Starting in the late 1980s with 7ha, the domaine now has more than 60ha mainly in Montlouis but with two parcels in Vouvray. The latest substantial acquisition was the Clos de Mosny, a 12ha, walled, south-facing vineyard in the southern part of the appellation, in autumn 2010.

Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups Jean-Philippe Blot and His Father Jacky  Winery Image
A new star has emerged in the heart of the Loire Valley: he is Jacky Blot of Domaine de la Taille aux Loups, in Montlouis and Vouvray. Montlouis is located on the southern bank of the Loire, opposite Vouvray. Blot, originally a Loire wine broker by profession, acquired about 8 hectares of 50-75 year old vines in 1989. These prized, ancient parcels belonged to families that could no longer continue to cultivate the vines and so entrusted them to Blot and his team. Blot brought a passion and exacting determination to make wines of only the highest quality, well beyond the norm of the day. Now more than 25 years on, Blot is the acknowledged pioneer of the region and is credited with having taken Chenin Blanc to unprecedented heights of quality.

On the south bank of the Loire River, below Vouvray, Montlouis produces all styles of Chenin blanc from bone dry, off-dry, sweet, oak aged and even the sparkling Montlouis Mousseux and Montlouis Pétillant Naturel. Soils here are lighter and sandier compared to Vouvray.

Unquestionably one of the most diverse grape varieties, Chenin Blanc can do it all. It shines in every style from bone dry to unctuously sweet, oaked or unoaked, still or sparkling and even as the base for fortified wines and spirits. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Somm Secret—Landing in South Africa in the mid 1800s, today the country has double the acreage of Chenin Blanc planted compared to France. There is also a new wave of dedicated producers committed to restoring old Chenin vines.
