Menetou Salon Blanc 2018 Domaine Berthier
n a pale gold colour this Menetou-Salon has a very intense nose with citrus notes and exotic fruits. On the palate the acidity is ample with a lovely freshness and a very aromatic finish.
Menetou-Salon is located directly southwest of Sancerre. This relatively small appellation is considered Sancerre’s little brother. The Berthier brothers decided on the Menetou-Salon area because the parcels consist of 100% clay soil. This terroir makes very fine and elegant Sauvignon Blanc. The average vine age is 30 years. They use 100% native yeast during fermentation before 8 months on fine lees in stainless. 2017 is entirely hand harvested and the first vintage for this exciting new wine.
