Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups Montlouis Remus 2017
The Remus combines remarkable density and richness with focus deriving from the wine’s minerality and fruity acidity. It can be enjoyed young for the accessible fruit– especially if decanted – or aged for many years which will bring out the nuances of a great dry Chenin Blanc.
Unquestionably one of the most diverse grape varieties, Chenin Blanc can do it all. It shines in every style from bone dry to unctuously sweet, oaked or unoaked, still or sparkling and even as the base for fortified wines and spirits. Perhaps Chenin Blanc’s greatest asset is its ever-present acidity, maintained even under warm growing conditions. Somm Secret—Landing in South Africa in the mid 1800s, today the country has double the acreage of Chenin Blanc planted compared to France. There is also a new wave of dedicated producers committed to restoring old Chenin vines.
