Menetou-Salonandnbsp;is a small appellation 30 kilometers southwest of the larger, older, and far more commercially successful commune of Sancerre. Paul-Henry Pelleandnbsp;is a thoughtful producer who shows that the top sites here, with the right amount of care, can produce Sauvignon Blanc of a quality that rivals upper tier Sancerreandnbsp;without the matching price tag. Les Blanchais was the first site the Pelle family decided to bottle as a single vineyard cru, sourced entirely from north east facing hillside with a higher portion of flint in the soil.andnbsp; The resulting wine is always a leaner, brighter expression of Morogues that stands as an extremely elegant botting of Sauvignon Blanc. Fermented and aged in foudres, 400-liter barrel and steel tank for 1 year andndash; no new oak.
