Menetou-Salon Blanc

Menetou-Salon AOP

Our Menetou-Salon is the newborn wine of the J. de Villebois Loire Sauvignon Blanc family !

Following its never ending quest of the Great Loire Sauvignon Blanc, with the addition of the Menetou Salon, J. de Villebois welcomes another prestigious appellation within its Loire Sauvignon Blanc family. Located in the famous “witch” area of the Berry, Menetou-Salon is a natural link between the Touraine and the Sancerre wines. For the second year, our J. de Villebois Menetou-Salon concentrates all the values of the J. de Villebois winehouse : aromatic intensity, cleanliness, zingyness, tailor-made ageing…

VINEYARD

Produced on the villages of Morogues and Humbligny on Kimmeridgien marls.

WINEMAKING PROCESS

The grapes are machine-picked, pressed into a pneumatic press after a 12 hours skin-contact maceration. The grape juices are fermented traditionally in tanks during 7 to 15 days.

AGEING

The newly made wine is aged on its fine lees in stainless steel tanks during 6 months. It is then blended and bottled in the spring following the harvest.
