Menetou-Salon Red 2013

The climatology during 2012-2013 marked by a very long winter, abundant precipitations in the spring and a strong temperature contrast in the summer, led to produce one of the latest vintage of the last twenty years. The harvest began later than the previous years, on October 7th. This vintage offers great acidity, which gives real tension and freshness to wines that fit into the continuity of the 2007 and 2008 vintages : these vintages reveal the thorough work of the wine-growers.

The red Menetou-Salon has a dark red colour. On the nose, aromas of cherry mingle with leather and spices. It is a round and rich wine. The palate is smooth in attack. The soft tannic structure blends well with the freshness of the mid-palate. It then finishes with a hint of praline offering a lingering aftertaste.

This wine can elegantly be paired with red meat, casseroles and fresh cheese.

Ideal serving temperature : between 15° and 16°C

Also available in magnum sized bottle (150cl).
