Recently included in NY Times’ Eric Asimov article “12 Summer Sparklers to Try — Because Who Needs a Reason”

“Jacky Blot is a revolutionary figure in Montlouis. His wines at Domaine de la Taille aux Loups have become a benchmark for dry Chenin Blancs. Blot was the first in Montlouis, in 1993, to make pet-nat, leading eventually to the appellation Montlouis Pétillant Originel in 2007. Committed to organic growing, Blot set out to make among the first single vineyard Chenin Blanc. Over three decades, Jacky Blot has helped put Montlouis on the map.” – Jason Wilson, Vinous Media

“A pétillant naturel from 40 to 80-year-old vines with zero capitalization, zero liqueur de tirage, and zero dosage. Aged 24 months on the lees. This is one of the better pet-nats I’ve tasted. Lemon and pineapple on the nose, with an underlying herbal character, and a long creamy finish.” – 94 points, VM
