Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups Montlouis Sec Clos du Hochet 2017

Rated 96 by Decanter
Occupying the highest point on the slope, Hauts de Husseau's soils feature less chalk but plenty of marine fossils. Here grow the domaine's oldest vines, with very deep roots. This wine is all about focused richness, displaying a saline nose with rich, pineappley scents. The palate is very intense but retains a sense of purpose, chanelling the ripe apple and sweet pineapple flavours down the centre while salinity floods the edges. Drinking Window 2020 - 2036.
Rated 93 by Vinous Media
From a cooler part of Montlouis, harvested up to 15 days later than Clos du Michet. Golden yellow in color. A lovely delicate nose of apricot, white blossom, and a touch of honey. On the palate, there’s citrus and tropical fruit and complex layers of stone and smoke, with linearity and precision.

With almost ninety controlled appellations, the Loire Valley is an extremely important region within France, and the significance of their produce cannot be overlooked.
