PRESENTATION

THE VINTAGE

2017 is the latest in a succession of early harvests. As winter drew to a close with temperatures worthy of late spring, nature
snowballed ahead. The vines continued to reach each milestone early, right up until harvest – despite very variable conditions which changed month by month and area by area. In short – Centre-Loire’s 2017 wines are made for enjoyment.

TERROIR

Our Menetou-Salon comes from one of the area’s finest terroirs; clay-limestone soils. This terroir gives our Menetou-Salon power and finess. 

WINEMAKING

As soon as they arrive in the winery, the harvested grapes are delicately pressed and the juice obtained is allowed to settle for around 36 hours. The alcoholic fermentation starts naturally at a controlled of the temperature (15-18°C).

Situation

Southwest of Sancerre, Menetou Salon sits in the Cher department and covers 560 hectares.

VARIETALS

Sauvignon blanc : 100%

Ageing

The wine is then matured for a few months on its fine lees until the bottling is carried out in the spring.
