Wine Makers

Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups 'Triple Zero' by Jacky Blot

I have been tasting and admiring the wine of Jacky Blot for some years. His move into winemaking has some resonance for Wines Direct. Jacky had, as a wine merchant, become so frustrated at the incompetence of the small growers in the Loire he got into winemaking himself. Self taught, he now has over 15 Hectares and prefers to work alone.

 

Production levels are low, fermentation is in wood and there is an extreme sorting regime to ensure quality of fruit. Jacky has never used chaptilisation (the addition of sugar). The Chenin Blanc produced by Jacky Blot has a quality and expression that is difficult to find and worth every euro. It is born out of his obsession to reap the best out of his terroir.
