Menetou Salon Blanc, Domaine Philippe Gilbert, Loire, France 2015
This product is currently sold out.
Family owned – biodynamic – small production
Philippe Gilbert is another of our trusted producers who is an ardent follower of the biodynamic movement.
In the appellation of Menetou-Salon, he produces powerful and elegant Sauvignon Blancs, just a matter of miles away from an area with historic ties to Scotland - the chateaux where Mary Queen of Scots spent her time in exile in the 1540s.
Philippe works 10 hectares of vineyards, with his current vines planted in 1990. Having converted to biodynamic production in 2007, he has not only seen a dramatic change in the quality of his production but also the general health of his land.
A fabulous alternative to Sancerre, fresh but soft and creamy acidity, ripe yellow fruit, long flinty finish.
