Domaine Henry Pelle, Menetou-Salon, Les Blanchais 2019
Separately vinified from their premier clos, the old vines deliver power and length. Citrus and vegetable notes melt into minerality without ever being too heavy or too exhuberant. A bottle that only improves with age.
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.
