Domaine de la Taille aux Loups: Wines

The obsession exhibited by Jacky and now Jean-Philippe Blot in the vineyard continues into the cellar with the vinification; Jacky never shied away from appropriate research into the use of oak, particularly using barrels made from various sources, different forests and different coopers. As a result of his work for many years almost all of the wines at La Taille aux Loups have been fermented in wood, either in barrique, demi-muid or even large foudres. No doubt Jean-Philippe will continue with this philosophy.
