Wine Region: Loire Valley, France
Grape: Pinot Noir
Due to the short maceration, this Pinot Noir is all about finesse, creating a balance between its fresh texture and the complex flavours of soft fruit such as strawberries and raspberries. The finish is delicate and very slightly salty.
About the Winery
The village of Menetou-Salon is located south-west of Sancerre and is surrounded by approximately 370 hectares of vineyards. Traditionally there was no viticulture here, but people mainly cultivated apples. The rich who settled in Menetou after the Middle Ages planted their own vineyards here and over time the world discovered the quality of this neighbor of Sancerre. The Menetou-Salon appellation dates from 1959. White, red and rosé wines are produced here.
