Menetou-Salon White 2005


My introduction to Philippe Gilbert’s wines was this: as good as any I have ever tasted from its appellation. Subtle but beguiling scents of flowers, lemon zest, honey, herbs and chalk dust prepare the way for a surprisingly rich and positively silken, yet persistently juicy and invigorating mouthful of citrus, flowers and herbs.

I am told that there will be a special cuvee “Les Renardieres” and I am sorry not to be able to report on it.
