Professional Wine Reviews for Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups Triple Zero NV

Rated 92 by Wine & Spirits
Triple Zéro is one of the wines Jacky Blot developed in the early 1990s, after he switched from wine broker to Loire winemaker. It’s conceived as a natural, bottle-fermented sparkling wine, made from a careful selection of clean grapes from vines more than 50 years old, ripe enough so that he doesn’t need to chaptalize (the first instance of zero added sugar referred to in the name). The wine spontaneously ferments in old barriques, then he bottles it when the residual sugar in the juice has fallen to 12 grams per liter, so he doesn’t need to add any liqueur de tirage to feed its fermentation in bottle (the second instance of zero added sugar). He leaves it on its lees for 24 months in bottle before clarifying it through riddling, then disgorges the lees and tops off the bottle with some of the same wine rather than any dosage (the third zero). No surprise that the wine is completely dry. The first impression is brisk limestone and tart lemon acidity before it opens to something lush and delicious, fragrant with red spice and white fruit. This will age well, or serve as an aperitif for oysters or a dinner wine with roast fish.

Winery Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups

Region: Loire Valley

The ancient wine region of the Loire Valley in France is a perfect place to discover the country's finest examples of white wines, which are made with a highly successful blend of traditional and modern wine-making techniques. Indeed, the Loire Valley has a wine-making tradition which stretches back almost two thousand years, and today continues to be a standard bearer for fine white wines made predominantly with Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc varietal grapes. However, it also produces superb red wines from the Cabernet Franc grapes which thrive there, and plenty of excellent rosé and sparkling wines for which the region is also famous. With almost ninety controlled appellations, the Loire Valley is an extremely important region within France, and the significance of their produce cannot be overlooked.

Country: France

French winemakers are subjected to several laws and regulations regarding the wines they produce, and how they can be labeled and sold. Such procedures are designed to increase the overall quality of the country's produce, and also to ensure that wines made in each particular region or appellation are of a character and type which is representative of the area. Thankfully for consumers of wine world-wide, the French have a particularly high reputation to uphold, and seem to do so flawlessly. Every year, wineries from all over France produce millions upon millions of bottles of fine wine, making the most of their native grape varieties and the excellent terrain which covers most of the country. From the expensive and exquisite red wines of Bordeaux and Burgundy, to the white wines and cremants of central France, the French are dedicated to providing the world with wines of the highest quality and most distinctive character.
