Product Description

COUNTRY France REGION Loire APPELLATION Menetou-Salon WINE TYPE White VARIETALS Sauvignon Blanc ORGANIC Practicing VINEYARD Made from several parcels in the village of Morogues. ORIENTATION Generally North-east facing hillsides, providing a 'cooler' aspect compared to the general "Morogues" bottling. SOIL Kimmeridgean limestone and silex. VITICULTURE Practicing organic. Soils plowed. Hand-harvested. VINIFICATION Wines fermented with a combo of natural and selected yeasts. AGING Aged in a combo of 70% tank and 30% wood (foudres and used 400L barrels) and for 11 months. PRODUCTION 7000 cases RATINGS PUBLICATION View from the Cellar – John Gilman DESCRIPTION The Pellé family has been my favorite producers of Menetou-Salon since I was first introduced to the wines of Henri Pellé back in the mid-1990s. Their 2018 Morogues bottling is every bit as good as one would expect from this flagship estate in a top vintage, offering up a pure and nicely ripe bouquet of lime, tart melon, chalky soil tones, a dollop of fresh-cut grass and a topnote of orange blossoms. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and nicely succulent in personality, with a fine core of fruit, lovely transparency and grip, sound framing acids and a long, complex and very classy finish. Good juice which is a touch softer than in some vintages, but that is the nature of the vintage, and it compensates for the slightly lower acids with simply beautiful purity. 2019-2024.
