About

Product Description:

"With François Chidaine, Jacky Blot has been instrumental in taking Montlouis out of Vouvray’s shadow and establishing for it a reputation of its own—and a better one at that. Much of what he has done appears old hat today, but it was revolutionary at the time: organic viticulture, hand harvests, wild yeasts, barrel fermentations and no malolactic conversions" –Vinous Media

"The future of Loire Valley Chenin Blanc is in single vineyard, dry, terroir-driven whites that challenge the greats of Burgundy for precision, length, complexity and ageability. Pioneers like Jacky Blot are currently making the wines of a lifetime. This has been literally 25 plus years in the making, ever since Jacky first purchased eight hectares of 50 to 75 year old vines in Montlouis in the late 1980s. Transforming and building this organically certified property began in 1988. The level of grower commitment to natural farming practices and non-interventionist vinification is easily the highest percentage of any Chenin appellation in the Loire Valley. Every site is allowed to sing, without the sugar, without the battonage, no malo, using low levels of SO2, and minimal filtration. Jacky Blot is without question one of the inspirational leaders of this growing movement." -Importer
