Menetou-Salon Morogues Pinot Noir Rosé 2018

No new notes, we adore this wine, drinking it by the case; it really sings when 3-4Y past vintage.

Nose has cherry skin, mashed strawberry and green melon.
Palate has fresh cut strawberry, orange zest and a chalky minerality. Medium length finish, great acid levels, touch of sweetness. $14.40!

A fun wine for an almost 80°F day in the Berkshires, atypical for early April.

Le Carroir Menetou Salon Morogues Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Nose has white flowers, sliced Bosc pear, sliced lychee, apricot skin, dry mason sand, banana peel and moist oak barrel (no char).

Palate has pear pureé, lemon zest, under-ripe pineapple, limestone water, minor oak influence with a medium finish, medium acidity.

More complexity than the Village, this Lieu-Dit bottle has more weight and structure. Suggest holding 2-4Y; 2023-25. ~$23

Domaine Henry Pellé

Menetou Salon Morogues Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Nose has yellow apple slice, lychee slice, washed lime, dry chalk and orange blossom.

Palate has warmed sweet green apple, lime peel, lime slice, crisp salinity, steely notes with medium level acidity. A short but fun finish, a solid wine for enjoyment; Purity of the appellation.

I am in agreement with some professional critics, the vintage of this Village wine appears a little softer than other years. This will be an earlier drinker, but would be rewarded with a brief hold of 1-2 years, 2022-23. ~$20

I still have to pick up my '19's, hopefully a bit more acidity to the next vintage.

Blanc de Blancs Champagne Chardonnay

The other great Blanc de Blancs from the owners of the legendary Maison Salon, it is 100% Chardonnay from vineyards in Le Mesnil sur Oger, in the heart of the Chardonnay-producing Côte des Blancs. Elegant, mineral, beautiful nose. Great freshness. — 8 days ago

Menetou-Salon Pinot Noir 2018

More depth than the Domaine Pelle ‘18 from the same appellation...black and red fruit, leather and potpourri, palate is sappy and mouth coating with ample tannins, but not heavy. Candidate for mid-term aging — 4 months ago

Yeah, not been impressed by the Pellé Pinot Noir, but the SB's are solid, especially the Lieu-Dits.

Domaine Henry Pellé

Les Bornés Menetou-Salon Sauvignon Blanc

Second menetou blanc of the evening. Still with oysters. A dryer version. Lemony and grassy nose with a zesty twist. A nice and long palate with a strong acid backbone, lemon notes and even elder flower, and a long finish with fruit and again that herbal touch. It's a tad lighter than the previous one, a bit dryer — 4 months ago
