Taille aux Loups Clos Michet by Jacky Blot is very very precise, pur, élégant ... Anyway a very big Montlouis sur Loire !

This vintage Rémus Domain de la Taille aux Loups is a fragmented selection, a grouping of some closed, too small youngs to be individualized.

This dry chenin is ample in mouth but its tension throughout the tasting shows us a magnificent model of balance.

Jacky Blot, years after years, makes of this vintage Rémus a magnificent image of the dry big Chenins.
