Jacky Blot Domaine de la Butte 2017

Product description

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. The Domaine de la Butte "Pied de la Butte" comes from the lower part of one of Jacky's most favoured vineyards. These 35+ year old vines reside in a mix of clay and silex (flint) over pure limestone. The wine is fermented in a mix of cement tanks and older barrels with indigenous yeasts. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this is lovely unadulterated Cabernet Franc.
