Philippe Gilbert Menetou-Salon Blanc 2018


Vinification: 30 year-old Sauvignon Banc on marl over Kimmeridgian limestone. Hand-harvested grapes, fermented spontaneously in temperature-controlled tanks. Elevage without batonnage on fine lees for 14 months.

Character: Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc with great focus on mineral texture rather than green aromatics. Delicately briny and maritime on the nose, round and broad on the palate with a lingering chalky mouthfeel. Delicious young but has the capacity to develop its oystery-earthy side for a couple of years.
