Domaine de la Taille aux Loups, a little jewel of the Loire!
Domaine de la Taille aux Loups was created in 1989 by Jacky Blot when he moved to Montlouis with his wife. After having some other jobs like Grand Crus trader, he decided to go for production of wines of a little known, at that time, appellation : the one called Montlouis. Then in 2002 he decided to extend to another grape variety, Cabernet Franc. He purchased then Domaine des Buttes in Bourgueil. As a strong supporter of sustainable wine production, he decided to grow his vines limiting chemical treatments and applying fragmented wine making. He was named « The Watchmaker of Montlouis » due to precision and rigor of his vintages !
One of the pioneers of sustainable agriculture
At the head of Domaine de la Taille aux Loups since 1989, Jacky Blot quickly made a step forward towards environmentally friendly agriculture, respectful of the labor. Yet at that time only a few vine growers made this choice, which is quite surprising. Nowadays, he's not alone but stands out from the crowd with high quality of his products, renowned by the biggest experts and guides (FYI, in 2016 he got a 5th star of Bettane et Desseauve guide like other iconic wine estates). Located on the territory of Montlouis-sur-Loire and Vouvray appellations, his estate also grows a unique grape variety - Chenin blanc, also called « le Pinot de la Loire ». Here the grapes are picked manually and the harvest starts as late as possible. For what concerns the wines, Jacky Blot is focused on dry, semi-dry, liqueur and dessert wines.
