Domaine Pellé Menetou-Salon Les Blanchais 2017

Its terroir provides its strength and its exposure provides its freshness. At the start of the 1980’s, a passion for the vine inspired Domaine Pellé to separately vinify our premier clos: les blanchais. We rightly believed that the complexity of the land is reflected in the wine…. These old vines deliver power and length in both the nose and on the palate. Citrus fruit and vegetal notes gently mingle with a subtle minerality without ever being too heavy or too exuberant.

  • The fermentations for the Menetou Morogues occur primarily in tank with about 15% in a combination of foudres and 400-liter barrels. The esteemed parcellaire cuvées are fermented and aged in a combo of tank (30%) and 400-liter barrels (70%) that are housed in a cold and serene 13th century underground cellar. 
  • Like the top wines from Chavignol, Pellé wines drink well on release, but also have the power and precision to age beautifully for 10-15 years, often longer in top vintages.
