Description

94 Point Wine Enthusiast Certified Organic Chenin Blanc

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.

Jacky’s “Clos de Mosny” Chenin is an old vines (50+ year) producing very low yields. No malolactic fermentation or battonage. This beautiful wine is rich, concentrated and spicy. Barrel aging has added touches of nutmeg to enhance the white stone fruits and mineral-driven texture. 94 Points Wine Enthusiast. Certified Organic.
