A great fine. Aromas of fresh white flowers, citrus - grapefruit, lemon - herbs and grass. Very pure and vibrant on the palate with citrus fruits - a touch of tangerine - minerals, and a salty note. Pair with fish, shellfish, sashimi, sushi.

Pelle is the leading estate in the Menetou-Salon appellation, which is situated just to the west of Sancerre, centered in the villae of Morogues. The estate is 40 hectares in size and planted on limestone and clay soils, rich in marine fossils. Wines from here are slightly richer than those of Sancerre. This wine is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc grapes from (7) different parcels. Paul-Henry Pelle is the current winemaker and 4th generation, and he farms organically with certification expected soon.

There are only (30) producers in this small appellation, all dedicated to very high quality. This wine is a real find with both vibrancy and delicacy. Morogues is 90% Kimmeridgian limestone, the same type that makes up the grands crus of Chablis and parts of Champagne. There is some silex in the Menetou-Salon vineyards as well, imparting a distinct slately note to the wines.These wines - 70%- are aged in larger barrels and used barrels, and 30% in tank for (11) months.

A great fine. Aromas of fresh white flowers, citrus - grapefruit, lemon - herbs and grass. Very pure and vibrant on the palate with citrus fruits - a touch of tangerine - minerals, and a salty note. Pair with fish, shellfish, sashimi, sushi.
