Dear Wine Lover,

Presenting a top Chenin Blanc from Taille Aux Loups - 
"Not only are the wines among the most exciting, scintillating examples of Chenin in the Loire, but they remain incredible value considering the quality"
James Button - Decanter Magazine
2019 Domaine de La Taille Aux Loups Montlouis "Les Hauts de Husseau", Loire, France, 6x750ml
HKD $330 per bottle
Available in original cases of 6
10% discount with Pace HK Credit Card Installment

"It's not Mont Blanc, but Les Hauts de Husseau is the highest point in the Montlouis appellation (at 90 meters in altitude), and so the local limestone is close to the surface, which is palpable in the chalky texture and fine line of the 2019. It comes from a cold site that's picked around a week and a half later than the domaine's other sites, but boy, is it worth the wait. It’s a little closed compared with its stablemates, but this is an exciting wine with underlying power that goes on and on, offering excellent distance. While there are subtle custard apple and crème caramel characters (likely a result of fermentation in old oak and extended time on fine lees), this is a wine whose most intriguing aspect is its texture and structure. There’s no hurry to drink this one."
94/100 Rebecca Gibb MW for Vinous

  • Certified organic
  • 100% Chenin Blanc
  • 70+ year old vines
  • Highest site in the appellation
  • Clay and silex, on pure limestone
  • Indigenous yeasts
  • No malolactic fermentation
  • Fermented and aged in barrel (20% new, 80% 1-4 year old barrels)

Family run between Jacky (who purchased his 50 year old vines in the 80s) and his son Jean-Philippe, situated in the quiet village of Montlouis-Sur-Loire near Vouvray. Organic influenced viticulture, Burgundian oak from 3 coopers, ancient vines. Like Jean-François Coche (of Coche-Dury) and Jean-Marc Roulot (of Domaine Roulot), Jacky exposes the grape must to oxygen before a long, slow fermentation and leaves the finished wine in steel tanks for months before bottling, which firms up the texture.
