Domaine Henry Pelle, Menetou-Salon ‘Les Bornes’ Blanc 2017

21.95

The perfect combination of the different areas of the Menetou-Salon region. ‘Les bornés’, which means ‘clay soil’ in Berrichon, the local dialect
from the Berry region of France, is an aromatic wine. The nose is reminiscent of the grape variety and the taste is full, rich and tender. A truly pleasurable wine that will reach its fullest potential in 2 to 3 years.

About This Wine...

“The Bornés rouge (Pinot Noir) has lovely cherry fruits, while this has bright, minerally, lemon aromas, a pleasing, soft, citrus-and-apple infused palate and a lingering, bitter almond kick” in the Irish Examiner, July 2019

The Estate

Situated right in the heart of France, in the extreme east of the Loire Valley, a stone’s throw from Bourges lies the charming little Berry village of Morogues with its fields, meadows and slopes clustered around its very beautiful church. The Domaine Henry Pellé cellars are nestled at the foot of one of these slopes.

Even though wine has been produced for years in Morogues, and even though the Pellés have been winegrowers for generations, it was only in 1959 (when the Menetou-Salon appellation was created) that the history of this very young appellation and that of the Pellé family became inter-twined. Out of respect for the terroirs of their vineyards the domaine practices organic viticulture.
