Menetou Salon Les Blanchais Pelle, Organic, full, minerally, citrus Loire Sauvignon. Les Blanchais is a full bodied Sauvignon from 40-year-old vines, a touch more vinous and more complex than the Morogues. Astonishingly pure mineral nose (slate), grape-pith and crystallised lemon on the palate, beautiful persistence and a rapier thrust of acidity.
