100% Sauvignon Blanc. 25 years old vines. 15 hectares on Kimmeridgian marl. Direct pressing of grapes on arrival at the winery. Settling. Fermentation in stainless steel vats. Ageing on the lees in stainless steel vats.
The perfect combination of the different areas of the Menetou-Salon appellation. ‘Les bornés’, which means ‘clay soil’ in Berrichon —the local dialect— is an aromatic wine. The nose is reminiscent of the grape variety
and the taste is full, rich and tender. A truly pleasurable wine that will pair well with shellfish, seafood and goat cheeses.
Our Domaine takes its roots in Morogues, a village at the far eastern end of the Loire Valley. Our cellars are close to the village centre, nestling below our beautiful “Les Cris” red grape vineyard. In each of our vineyard plots in the neighbouring Menetou-salon and Sancerre appellations, we observe Mother Nature, cherishing and working with her so that she gives us her very best in return.
The work carried out in our vineyards is designed to take the unique expressions of each one of our terroirs from the vine to the bottle. The parcels are grown without the use of weed killer or pesticide and the soils are ploughed. We take care of the vineyards each day, which enables us to carefully consider each operation we undertake, ensuring we act with precision and in a sustainable manner.
At Domaine Pellé, in Morogues, 4 generations have passed on their passion, one to the next. Anne and Paul-Henry Pellé are the current protagonists.
