La Villaudière 2022 Menetou-Salon

Terroir Located to the north-east of Bourges, Menetou-Salon is a very old wine growing area, as shown in the seigneury’s old records. The area’s vineyards were created by a succession of gifts, including vines, made by the lords to various religiousorders in the region. Following the phylloxera crisis in the late nineteenth century, the parcels of vines were replanted up until the time the appellation of origin was created in 1959. Today extending over 450 hectares of limestone and Kimmeridgian marl terrain, the area has all the characteristics required to produce a typical, fresh wine of great complexity. Winemaking After a 12-24 hour settling period, fermentation took place in a temperature controlled vat between 15-20°C. A first tasting is then carried out to assess the particular characteristics of the vintage. After a careful selection of the wines, we carry out the clarification, stabilization and bottling operations on the Domaine. Tasting notes The wine releases elegant and pronounced scents on the nose, offering a complex olfaction of fresh grapes, exotic fruit and citrus. Soft and smooth on the palate, the wine shows concentration and a strong, crisp character which melts into the wine’s full body. Power, precision and persistence make this a beautiful Menetou-salon wine.
