Montlouis Sur Loire, Touraine

Domaine de la Taille aux Loups

Montlouis-sur-Loire Clos Michet Chenin Blanc 2017

Elegant and sophisticated wine. Yellow fruits, nuts, quince jam, benzene notes and tilia with some bakery hints. High electric acidity, well balanced, has lots of power and potential. It's almost ready to kick me in the face. Long aftertaste with flavours of tilia honey and green apricot. Young yet delicious!

Monopole Clos de Mosny Montlouis Sur Loire Chenin Blanc 2015

Expressive and sophisticated bouquet with benzene notes, Jerez, nuts, tilia honey, slightly rotten mandarins. With time the nose evolves, calms down and you get green tea with jasmine as a bonus. Multilayered wine, with long jerez-like evolving taste, flavours of green almond and yellow fruits with benzene. Great wine, wonderful QPR, shame it's not available anymore.

Beautiful. Some RS or botrytis influence here as the wine was rather rich and opulent. Not sweet though. — a month ago

La Grange Tiphaine Clef de Sol Chenin Blanc 2017

Very nice. Beeswax, lemon, minerals, apricots, and another fruit that’s not quite tropical. Can’t put my finger on it. Maybe underripe melon? Anyways love it! — 15 days ago
