J. de Villebois - Menetou-Salon
Our Menetou-Salon is the newborn wine of the J. de Villebois Loire Sauvignon Blanc family! Following its never ending quest of the Great Loire Sauvignon Blanc, with the addition of the Menetou Salon, J. de Villebois welcomes another prestigious appellation within its Loire Sauvignon Blanc family. Located in the famous “witch” area of the Berry, Menetou-Salon is a natural link between the Touraine and the Sancerre wines. For the second year, our J. de Villebois Menetou Salon concentrates all the values: aromatic intensity, cleanliness, zingyness, tailor-made ageing…
Pale yellow color. Intense nose of exotic fruit favors, peach and wild flowers. A soft yet refreshing palate. Enjoy the feeling of eating a ripe sauvignon berry while tasting this wine. Pair it with white fish and fruits! Delicious.
