Winemaker Notes

Blend: 100% Chenin Blanc

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 95
Decanter
Until the 2015 vintage Les Hauts de Husseau was called Rémus Plus. This is a blend of five single vineyards in the northern part of the Montlouis appellation where the majority of the vines are between 70 and 90 years old, planted on thin flinty soil over limestone. The oldest vines, however, date from 1912. These three 2019s perfectly illustrate the importance, especially in a hot year, of picking at the optimum moment and having a very large team of pickers to harvest as quickly as possible. The 2019 has a fine balance of vibrant fruit and racy acidity with an attractive texture. Currently less expressive than the Clos Mosny it has a delicate tension and a long finish. Very good potential to develop and to age for at least two decades.

Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups Jean-Philippe Blot and His Father Jacky  Winery Image
A new star has emerged in the heart of the Loire Valley: he is Jacky Blot of Domaine de la Taille aux Loups, in Montlouis and Vouvray. Montlouis is located on the southern bank of the Loire, opposite Vouvray. Blot, originally a Loire wine broker by profession, acquired about 8 hectares of 50-75 year old vines in 1989. These prized, ancient parcels belonged to families that could no longer continue to cultivate the vines and so entrusted them to Blot and his team. Blot brought a passion and exacting determination to make wines of only the highest quality, well beyond the norm of the day. Now more than 25 years on, Blot is the acknowledged pioneer of the region and is credited with having taken Chenin Blanc to unprecedented heights of quality.

On the south bank of the Loire River, below Vouvray, Montlouis produces all styles of Chenin blanc from bone dry, off-dry, sweet, oak aged and even the sparkling Montlouis Mousseux and Montlouis Pétillant Naturel. Soils here are lighter and sandier compared to Vouvray.

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.
