Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups Vouvray Les Caburoches 2012

Domaine de la Taille Aux Loups Vouvray Les Caburoches 2012

Analogous to the Dix Arpents, this accessible Vouvray is from the first passage through the vineyards. Blot's Vouvray Sec Les Caburoches originates in a 30-year-old, south-facing vineyard with limestone-clay soil on a pure limestone base. The vineyard is plowed and cultivated following the practice of lutte raisonnee. Blots prunes severely with the goal of attaining a yield of about 20 hectoliters per hectare, which is tiny for a Vouvray. The grapes are all harvested by hand and then hand selected on a sorting table. After a gentle pneumatic pressing, fermentation begins with the native yeasts and no chaptalization. The wine develops on its lees in neutral, 4-5 year old barrels until the spring, when it is bottled. Blot's Vouvray is a deeply textured, concentrated yet fresh and vivid Chenin Blanc.
