Varietal: Pinot Noir
Region: Menetou-Salon, Loire Valley, France
Bertrand Minchin makes a classic example of Pinot Noir in Menetou Salon sourced from scattered plots with Kimmeridgian soils throughout the appellation. Your glass will explode with aromas of cherries, woodsmoke, chalk, cedar and fresh herbs. The palate is vibrant with a core of red fruit and ripe tannins. A long and gentle maceration followed by aging in neutral French oak barrels ensures that this wine retains beautiful tension between sweet and tart red fruit and a classic Kimmeridgian mineral finish. This bottle is simply wonderful and would pair with any food you have on the table, but give this a try with roasted brussels sprouts!
