K&L Notes

Jacky Blot discovered wine as a junior pâtissier while working at a restaurant in Paris in his younger days. Eventually deciding to follow the winemaking track in life, he ultimately came to acquire the Domaine la Taille aux Loups in Montlouis sur Loire, some twenty years ago, and eventually added the Domaine de la Butte in Bourgueil to his portfolio. The two estates both reside along the Loire and perhaps do not have the same notoriety as their kissing cousins, Vouvray and Chinon. But what Jacky does is extremely special and his wines rival the quality levels of many of those more famous regions' top producers. Domaine de la Butte's Perrieres vineyard sits on clay over pure limestone, one of the best expositions you could hope for in this region. Made from 100% Cabernet Franc from 30+ year old vines, the grapes are destemmed and the wine is fermented with indigenous yeasts. The wine sees some barrel about 20% new and is bottled unfined and unfiltered. This is a classic and cellar worthy rendition from one of the Loire's top winemakers.

    If the Bourgueil region were to classify Grand Cru vineyards, Perrieres would be at the top of the list. Deep and dense (for Cab Franc), this is savory and spiced with black cherry and sassafras notes. It is a wonderful wine with a little decant but give it a short rest in the cellar for even more character. Gorgeous!
