Jacky Blot has added another 20 hectares to his Montlouis holding. After the harvest he will take over 12 hectares in the historic Clos du Mosny vineyard, which is on the road between Saint-Martin-Le-Beau and Montlouis. He has also acquired more of the Clos Michet, which from the 2009 vintage will be released as a single vineyard Montlouis (14€ a bottle for the 2009).
Jacky will be releasing a Triple Zéro Rosé (AC Touraine) next year. The blend for this pétillant is roughly 50% Grolleau and 50% Gamay. Like the white it will have no added sugar with natural yeasts used for the first fermentation with an addition of cultured yeasts for the secondary fermentation.
