Menetou-Salon Rouge

Loire valley wines

Locally known as ‘Les Marnes de Saint-Doulchard’, the Terres Blanches terroir is a Pinot Noir blessing as it thrives in the deep clays marls. The marls and clay provide a regular water supply from the spring up to the harvest season. The grapes are hand-picked at their opti- mal maturity and vinified in small vats. The Terres Blanches terroir raises the Menetou-Salon Rouge to the rank of Loire Premier Cru!
