La Taille aux Loups Triple Zero
The wine's name refers to the fact that no sugar is added during the three traditional times that sugar is usually added for sparkling winemaking: zero chaptalization, zero liqueur de tirage (or sugar syrup), zero dosage. The result is a sparkling wine with unsurpassed elegance, purity, and expression of fresh, soft citrus and pear flavors.
100% Chenin. Domaine de la Taille aux Loups is comprised of 62 acres in Montlouis and Vouvray, with the core of the estate in the Montlouis-sur-Loire appellation on a high plateau overlooking the Loire and Cher rivers. The soil is a mix of stony limestone and clay that allows Chenin Blanc grapes to perfectly ripen. Row plowing, no-chemical usage, severe pruning, and late-season leaf-stripping keeps yields low and enhances the concentration and complexity of the wines.
