2017 Philippe Gilbert Menetou Salon blanc

2017 Philippe Gilbert Menetou Salon blanc


Here is an impression from David Schildknecht:

“Gilbert’s 2011 Menetou-Salon was not yet assembled when I tasted individual lots from tank, but a composite tasting note will convey a useful impression of how the eventual wine (which will as usual be subject to several bottlings) should taste. Honeydew melon, gooseberry and sweet lime make for a juicy but relatively soft palate impression, with hints of green herbs and a touch of chalk adding interest to a succulent finish. This displays an admirable sense of lift for its vintage. I would plan on enjoying it over the next couple of years.”

Philippe’s entry level Sauvignon blanc is a naked tank aged example that puts the assembled purity of several of his parcels front and center, a wonderful intro to the house and the appellation’s spitting image of Sancerre’s essential limestone/clay driven architecture. If everyday Sancerre is something that you consider and fits a need on your table, this is your stop.
