Crisp, dry and wonderfully mineral. A fantastic example of single vineyard Sauvignon Blanc from the tiny village of Menetou-Salon. The wine has real substance and displays classic Sauvignon Blanc notes in a sophisticated and delicate way. Pure, intense, sweetly spiced fruit with an edgy yet complex character, and a delicious balance between fine minerality and rich, concentrated fruit. 2018 was a warmer, more approachable vintage and although not as crackly and brittle as in other years, Pellé has adapted its style and made a relaxed wine with lovely freshness and extract.
Match with seafood dishes such as scallops, mussels, prawns and lobster and perfect too with goats cheese.
