  • Mineral notes and a hint of liquorice underpin rich and complex aromas of deep red cherries and wild strawberries. The palate is silky smooth, with delicate fruity notes enveloped in a beautifully balanced structure.  Today, with an established reputation for quality, the estate has doubled to 17 hectares in Menetou-Salon and 14 in Valençay. The modern winery incorporates the latest technology, and Bertrand is hand-crafting award-winning wines that are on par with the finest Sancerre.

The grapes were harvested by hand at optimum maturity, destemmed and crushed bypneumatic press. Fermentation was carried out in temperature controlled tanks. Following fermentation, the wine was aged on its lees in oak vats for eight months; of which 80% spent its maturation in cone-shaped oak tanks, and the remaining 20% was in oak barrels.

Rich and complex aromas of deep red cherries and wild strawberries are underpinned by mineral notes and a hint of liquorice. Silky smooth on the palate, with delicate fruity notes enveloped in a beautifully balanced structure.

Winery

Domaines Minchin is located in the heart of the Loire Valley. Having studied oenology at Beaune and Dijon, Bertrand Minchin acquired his first vineyards in the village of Morogues over 20 years ago, planting them with eight hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and seven of Pinot Noir. Today with an established reputation for quality, the estate has doubled in size to 17 hectares in Menetou-Salon and a further 14 in Valençay. The modern winery incorporates the latest technology and Bertrand is hand-crafting award-winning wines that are on a par with the finest Sancerre.

The grapes come from a single vineyard ‘Pommerais’ in the appellation of MenetouSalon, which is situated in the eastern part of the Loire Valley. Domaines Minchin is certified by Haute Valeur Environmentale and the vineyards are managed according to a strict sustainable philosophy, known as la Lutte Raisonnée. The vineyard is planted with grass, and the soil is tilled and worked to ensure the health and vigour of the vine, while encouraging beneficial biodiversity. Debudding takes place in spring along with careful canopy management in summer, including thinning, which encourages the
grapes to reach optimal ripeness and concentrates the flavours in the berries.
