Grape VarietySauvignon Blanc
StyleAromatic & Zesty
This wine shows what good value can be found in the lesser known 'appellation' of Menetou-Salon located to the west of Sancerre; fresh and floral with aromas of citrus and blackcurrant leaves, it's zesty and racy but with rounder fresh fruit balanced by minerally length. The grapes are sourced from six different parcels ('clos') of vineyard (average age of vines is 18 years) located in the commune of Morogues, all planted in Kimmeridgian limestone-clay marl soil (which apparently imparts elegant mineral tones) and facing either south-west, south or south-east thus getting the maximum benefit of the morning sun. The 35 hectare Domaine is cultivated by measures that maintain natural balance and work the soil in the traditional way (for example weeding, clearing and grape thinning by hand), but also to enable machine harvesting.
