APPELLATIONS CUVÉES

The Menetou-Salon appellation stretches on a narrow strip of hills starting west end of Sancerre and going up to the north east of the Bourges city. The appellation covers 560 hectares of ‘Terres Blanches’ terroir of south facing hills tucked between the Pays Fort plateau and the Loire river plain. Menetou Salon enjoys a long lasting history and was mentionned by Jacques Coeur in 1450. The diversity of the Terres Blanches terroir endows a legitimate identity to the Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.

WINEMAKING & AGEING

Planted on numerous steep hills with varying sun exposures, our vineyard requires a great deal of attention to get its essence. At harvest time, the daily tasting of the berries in each vineyard enables us precisely to choose the ideal picking date. The fermentation of the juices in temperature controlled tanks is followed by the ageing on fine lees (with a weekly batonnage) up to the bottling in the Spring following the harvest.

FOOD PAIRING

Seafood, citronella sea bream or a risotto with large prawns will release the potential of the Côtes de Morogues. Its sophisticated minerality will magnify your most delicate dishes..
