Guide Dussert-Gerber 2008

The domaine Philippe Gilbert

(…) After having practised organic farming, this year they are starting to convert the Domaine to biodynamics. Menetou-Salon Renardières Rouge 2005, made from the oldest vines, is robust, with plenty of material and tannins, with red fruit and woodland aromas, with very good ageing. Excellent Menetou-Salon White 2006, from the sauvignon, very balanced, aromatic and persistent, very dry and complex in the mouth, combining structure and finesse, which I liked very much. The cuvée Les Renardières White 2005 is a tasty wine that mixes fresh fruits, walnuts and a fine finish. No hesitation.
