Winery: “The fermentations for the Menetou Morogues occur in a majority of tank with about 15% in wood, both foudres and 400-liter barrels, though there is a plan to increase the percent of wood élévage moving forward. The single-vineyard wines are raised in 70% wood – also foudres and 400L – with the balance in tank. These wines are also fermented 100% with indigenous yeasts, and are raised for a minimum of 11-12 months before bottling. Like the top wines from Chavignol, these wines drink well on release, but also have the ability to age beautifully for 10-15 years, often longer in top vintages.”The majority of the estate’s 40 Ha of vines are situated in and around the village of Morogues. As Paul-Henry explained, “Morogues is comprised of 90% Kimmeridgian limestone. This is why my grandfather pushed so hard to give it the status it deserved”. This limestone is the same blessed soil type that makes up great terroirs of Chablis, Chavignol, and parts of the Aube in Champagne. Whether with Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, or Pinot Noir, it helps to create complex, elegant, mineral-laden wines that can age well too.”The grapes for all of these cuvées are hand-harvested, a major rarity in these part of the wine world.” Bottle750ml, corkVarietal100% Sauvignon BlancCountryFranceRegionLoireAppellationMenetou-SalonSoilKimmeridgean, limestone, silexAgingCombo of 70% tank 30% wood for 11 months
