ABOUT THIS WINE
Taille aux Loups Triple Zero is a natural sparkling wine made with the Chenin Blanc variety by Jacky Blot in the AOC Mountlouis-sur-loire, in the Loire region (France). As the name “Triple Zero” suggests, Taille aux Loups Triple Zero is a natural sparkling wine made without chaptalisation, no liqueur de tirage and no expedition liqueur.
Taille aux Loups Triple Zero comes from old vines planted in calcareous soils. These are certified organic vineyards cultivated using only organic treatments and no chemicals. The harvest is carried out manually at the optimum point of ripeness.
The Taille aux Loups Triple Zero grapes ferment spontaneously in oak barrels and, when there is still some residual sugar, the must is transferred to the bottle to finish fermentation and develop fine bubbles. Finally, the wine ages on its lees for 24 months before disgorgement.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
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.
