Jean Colin
Menetou Salon is a small commune some miles south and west of the Loire at Sancerre and Pouilly Fumé. Principally grown on chalky soils that have better water retention that in other parts of the valley, this wine shows a richness and elegance that is often lacking from more famous regions on the river. The vines that belong to Eric Louis make excellent versions of this wine; it has complexity, structure and a delicious, broad mouthfeel that allows it to pair with a wide range of foods from fine cuisine, shellfish and salads, to game and roast meats. They are very proud of their efforts for this wine, and we are very proud to be able to list it and encourage people to try the wines from this wonderful, tiny, region
