A brilliant sparkling white of Chenin Blanc from the heart of the Loire. A certified organic vineyard with 40 year old vines, these grapes express the local terroir magnificently though the unadulterated nature of the winemaking. No malolactic takes place, the dosage is very low (3g\L), and native yeast all allow the Chenin's acidity.
From the mouth of the importer (Skurnik):
"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."
