This eponymously named domaine was established by none other than Henry Pelle of course, and dates back to at least 1959, the time of the creation of the Menetou-Salon appellation, although the family have been making wine in the region since long before that. To date the domaine remains in the hands of Henry’s descendants, having been passed down at least two generations. The current incumbent is Anne Pelle, the widow of Eric Pelle – Henry’s son – who died in 1995, and she runs the estate with the assistance of her own son Paul-Henry.
A pale wine with a lemon-green tinge. Very fresh on the nose with mineral floral and green grass aromas. Firm acidity to be found on the palate balanced and clean and crisp. Lemony flavoursome fresh. And it has great finesse. It’s potential for food pairing is exciting to consider, rich with exotic fruit flavours. Lychee and citrus.
This can only be Sauvignon Blanc due to the pungent, gooseberry aromatics, light body and high, sharp, tangy acidity, a great alternative to top drawer Sancerre but without the price tag!
100% Sauvignon Blanc.
