Le Carroir Menetou Salon Morogues Sauvignon Blanc 2019

A nice bottle of Sauvignon blanc from the non-Sancerre Loire. Sometimes you have to diversify away from white burg, I suppose. This is very nice - 14.5%, but mostly only shows that way in the density of the wine on the palate. Wonderful white fruits, some rockiness, nice finish, medium plus acid. Excellent pairing with some wild caught cod with a miso panko crust. — a month ago

Menetou-Salon Morogues Pinot Noir Rosé 2020

Nose has crushed strawberry, Clementine orange slice, yellow raspberry, red raspberry, green table grapes and moist chalk.

Palate has cherry, (light) raspberry, Clementine orange zest, partially dried strawberry, green melon, (light) steely notes and faint salinity. Nice wine, good finish, think this will settle into a greater spot in a couple years.

Quite a fruit forward profile on the nose, this is presently drinking better than the '19, likely closer to the '18 for immediate enjoyment. We generally hold at least a case on most vintages, for consumption 2-3Y past current vintage. The strategy hasn't failed us yet on satisfaction for this bottling.

Premiere Cuvee Menetou-Salon Pinot Noir

Expression concentrée et minérale du Pinot Noir en Loire. Belle acidité fondue portée par des notes primaires framboises/cerises. Corps et finale sur des notes florales, herbacées et terreuses. Tanins persistants tout en finesse. Belles notes musquées et épicée. Superbe dans cette gamme de prix.
