2014 Montlouis “Les Dix Arpents”- Domaine de la Taille aux Loups (Jacky Blot) The Les Dix Arpents bottling from Jacky Blot is his Sec Montlouis and the wine is excellent in the fine vintage of 2014. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a youthfully complex and vibrant mélange of quince, chalky soil tones, orange zest, lanolin and spring flowers. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, nascently complex and quite accessible structurally, with a fine core, lovely soil signature, bright acids and very good length and grip. This is lovely wine and really augurs well for the other 2014s that Monsieur Blot will release in the coming months. 2015-2035+. 92.

Product Description:

"The Montlouis Les 10 Arpents comes from vines across all of the domaine’s Montlouis vineyards. The vines range in age from 5-40 years and the soils are a mix of limestone and clay over a limestone subsoil. Blot prunes severely with the goal of keeping yields as low as possible. The grapes for the 10 Arpents are all harvested by hand in the first of three (or more) passes through the vineyard. They are then hand-selected on a sorting table. After a gentle pneumatic pressing, fermentation begins with the native yeasts and no chaptalization. The wine develops on its lees in neutral, 4-6 year old barrels until the Spring, when it is bottled. Blot’s 10 Arpents is a full, pure, dry Chenin Blanc with vivid and persisting citrus and pear flavors and a soft underlying minerality." -Importer
