Domaine De L'Ermitage

Menetou-Salon Sauvignon Blanc

In a blind tasting this could easily be confused with a NZ Sauv Blanc....there are a number of tasting similarities...except NZ continues to struggle to produce this level of sophistication. (Just down the road from Sancerre, this Menetou-Salon is a lovely, lovely wine.) — 14 days ago

Menetou-Salon Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Cat piss, citrus and a bit of chalk too. Interesting. The palate is well balanced with a strong acid frame but a bright citrusy fruit too. Some chalky texture in the sides make for an easy going wine! The finish is all chalk and citrus for a long ride. Cool stuff! — 2 months ago

Menetou-Salon Morogues Pinot Noir Rosé 2017

On the Lawn at Tanglewood this afternoon with the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra, the youths (mostly college)! Our conductor Andris Nelsons is leading one operatic work from WAGNER (Die Walküre, Act II & III). This is our WAGNER weekend with the BSO, Act I was performed last night.

Consistent notes from our last experience. After having the 2018, we prefer where the 2017 it's drinking at this stage, just a little bit more relaxed.

Round and beautiful on the palate, all stainless in the process so distinct fruit notes. Cold chalk, cherry skin, minor orange zest, green melon, light tannins, very enjoyable strawberry finish, great value as a neighbor to Sancerre for under $15.
