A blend of 7 parcels from the highest slopes of the appellation. This location (cool yet sunny climate) and this soil (Kimmeridgian marl) give this wine a subtle, pure nose with aromas of white flowers and citrus fruits. The taste is racy and cristalline, clear with a citrus fruit taste initially followed by a saline and mineral finish. Nothing overly exuberant: just clarity and precision.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Menetou-Salon Morogues is a precision work of 100% Sauvignon Blanc from seven different parcels of the corresponding village. It is a very pure, almost ascetic wine, displaying lovely mineral flavors and a rather subtle fruit of citrus, white fruits, oysters and algae in a very precise and elegant way. Mineral and impressively persistent on the mid-weighted palate, there is also a remarkable purity, finesse and freshness. This is Sauvignon for grown-ups!
