            [Notes1] => A blend of different parcels from the Morogues commune gives the wine a beautiful complexity and richness.  White flowers on the nose carry on to the palate.  Lovely citric edge gives good balance and length.
            [Notes2] => The estate`s vineyards are situated at around 300 metres altitude in the commune of Menetou-Salon and up to 350 metres altitude in the hills of Morogues. The grapes for this wine come from 3 areas situated on Kimmeridgian and hard limestone and the vineyard areas cover a total of 5 hectares with a denisty of 7,500 vines per hectare. The parcels are grown without the use of weed killers or pesticides and the soils are ploughed (winter ploughing and hoeing during the growing season). The region enjoys a continental climate.   Composts, produced at the estate are applied from time to time, in response to any decreases in vigour or soil nutrition. Harvesting on the estate is done by hand.
            [Notes3] => 
            [Notes4] => A blend of 7 parcels from the highest slopes of the appellation. This location (cool yet sunny climate ) and this soil (Kimmeridgean marl) give this wine a subtle, pure nose with aromas of white fl owers and citrus fruits. The taste is racy and cristalline, clear with a citrus fruit taste initially followed by a saline and mineral fi nish. Nothing overly exuberant. just clarity and precision.

About this product +

Producer >

Paul-Henry Pellé, the fourth generation of the Pellé family, today farms a 40 hectare estate around the village of Morogues in the heart of Menetou-Salon. Both grape growers and until the early 1990s, grapevine nursery owners, the family have developed their vineyard holdings across the kimmeridgian soils of this hilly region since the start of the 19th century. The land is farmed organically with 1/3rd of their plots planted with Pinot Noir and the rest with Sauvignon Blanc. The whites are fermented and aged in both tank and barrel, depending on the cuvée, whilst the reds are made in tank and wooden fermenters with further maturation in the latter. 

Viticulture >

The estate`s vineyards are situated at around 300 metres altitude in the commune of Menetou-Salon and up to 350 metres altitude in the hills of Morogues. The grapes for this wine come from 3 areas situated on Kimmeridgian and hard limestone and the vineyard areas cover a total of 5 hectares with a denisty of 7,500 vines per hectare. The parcels are grown without the use of weed killers or pesticides and the soils are ploughed (winter ploughing and hoeing during the growing season). The region enjoys a continental climate. Composts, produced at the estate are applied from time to time, in response to any decreases in vigour or soil nutrition. Harvesting on the estate is done by hand.

Winemaking >

Aged in stainless steel vats on fine lees for 6 months.
