Menetou-Salon Blanc Morogues "Les Blanchais" Domaine Pellé, Central Vineyards 2020
|Domaine Pellé, Reuilly, Central Vineyards
Straddling the appellations of Sancerre and Menetou-Salon, Domaine Pellé produces world renowned terroir-expressive wines from its family-owned vineyards. Fourth-generation winemaker Paul-Henry Pellé pays meticulous attention to viticulture and winemaking to ensure the expression of pure varietal flavours and aromas of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir as well as the natural characteristics of the Kimmeridgian vineyards.
A blend of 7 parcels from the highest slopes of the appellation. This location (cool yet sunny climate) and this soil (Kimmeridgian marl) give this wine a subtle, pure nose with aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits. The taste is racy and cristalline, clear with a citrus fruit taste initially followed by a saline and mineral finish. Nothing overly exuberant: just clarity and precision.
Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
