Ménétou-Salon Rouge, Gilbert

Ménétou-Salon Rouge, Gilbert - 2022

Item # 17796 750mL

From the Ménétou-Salon appellation, located just west of Sancerre, comes a Pinot Noir that is full of pretty, floral, and supple red berry fruit. There's a cool kiss of mineral on the finish, giving this a fuller feel on the palate. This hand-harvested, earthy Loire red is great for grilled sausages, roasted turkey breast in rich sauces and mushroom pizza.

Possessed of an herbal and earthy edge, structure, and ripe fruit, the wine plays more than amicably with the simple, savory flavors of this classic fare. -Sophie


Pinot Noir

The Burgundy region of northeastern France is the historic home of the Pinot Noir grape, and is the source of the world’s greatest examples. Here one finds renditions of Pinot Noir that deliver power with finesse and grace, wines that have unimaginable depth of flavor, yet are perfectly balanced and ephemeral in the mouth - in short, wines that deliver all that Pinot Noir has to offer.

There’s a lot to remember when it comes to the Loire. Novices, take note: Cabernet Franc is a great alternative to Cabernet Sauvignon, Muscadet is unparalleled as a companion to shellfish, and Cour Cheverny is the best white wine appellation you’ve never heard of. As diverse as Loire wines are, one day soon you'll know your Melon de Bourgogne from your Romorantin.
