Wine Spectator, 91 Points 

"This is coming together nicely but needs more time, with high acidity becoming an integrated part of the wine, supporting the notes of persimmon, nectarine and lemon pith. Shows great intensity and remains quite powerful midpalate, but softens with hints of cardamom on the long, mineral-infused finish. Best from 2022 through 2032." — JM 

Winemaking: Fermented and aged in barrel (20% new, 80% 1-4 year old barrels) 

About the Producer: 

"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."
