Every step has been taken to preserve the fresh and delicious fruit in this wine. More info

This Menetou-Salon is produced from old Sauvignon vines grown on marl, clay and limestone soil. In order to preserve the freshness of the fruit, it is aged predominantly in stainless steel vats then in 400-litre barrels on fine lees for 8 months. The wine therefore has an aromatic bouquet which is imbued with citrus and mineral notes. Ageing on the lees gives it a pleasing roundness which mellows its vegetal tinge. This is a perfect wine to accompany subtle, delicate dishes.

Menetou-Salon Les Blanchais Henry Pellé (Domaine) serve at a temperature of 12°C. It will pair perfectly with the following dishes: Asperges froides, Carpaccio de noix de Saint-Jacques, Cabillaud en papillote.
