Loire Valley, France, 2017


The small appellation of Menetou-Salon, just under 500 hectares, is adjacent to Sancerre to the south-west. Like its better-known neighbour, it too is planted with Sauvignon Blanc. Here, the vines are planted on Kimmeridgian limestone soils, very similar to those of Chablis, and similar mineral notes can be detected in the wines. Cool-fermented and unoaked, the wine shows fresh citrus fruit, such as grapefruit, green fruit and herbaceous nuances.
