Tasting Notes

A remarkable expression of continental Sauvignon combining freshness and a rich
texture. In the glass, the wine develops a complex and delicate bouquet of citrus,
then exotic fruit such as passion fruit, mango and lychee. Exceptional length that
perfectly highlights the minerality of this delicious Sauvignon

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.
