Details

The vineyards of Menetou Salon are mainly based on compounds of calcareous sediments of Kimmeridgian soil. In its west (sector Renardières) part, the landscape has a softer profile and the soil is clay. To the east (sector Morogues), the coast is strong, higher altitude and more calcareous soils, with some siliceous to Morogues areas. The 2015 vintage produced many of the best white wines in many years all over Europe and this Menetou-Salon Blanc is no exception. Ready now, this wine will age well for many years to come.

Region

Loire Valley


Covering 87 different AOCs, the Loire Valley is known for a fresh and fruity wine style, paired with crisp flavors. Some of the best known AOCs of France can be found in this region, including Sancerre, Chinon, Muscadet Sevre et Maine and Pouilly-Fume.

The region is dominated by the variety's Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc and Melon de Bourgogne ("Muscadet") for whites and by Cabernet Franc, Gamay and Pinot Noir for reds. Next to still wines, the Loire Valley is also the second-largest producer of sparkling wines in France.

Subregion

Menetou Salon


Located southwest of Sancerre, this relatively small appellation produces a similar range of high-quality white, red and rosé wines that offer excellent value. Grape varieties are sauvignon blanc for whites ("Menetou-Salon Blanc") and pinot noir for rosé and reds. The region is located in the Cher department and covers ten communes: Menetou-Salon, Quantilly, Aubinges, Saint-Célos, Morogues, Parassy, Soulangis, Vignoux-sous-les-Aix, Pigny, and Humbligny. 310 hectars are roughly shared between reds and whites with a small percentage belonging to excellent rose wines. Minimum planting density of 5,600 vines per hectare. Guyot or double Guyot pruning. The vines are planted in upper Jurassic Kimmeridgian limestone sediment. The rugged side (Cuesta) to the east (Morogues) softens toward the west as it moves nearer to Menetou-Salon.
