This is one of the best values in Pinot Noir, period. Hand-harvested, biodynamically cultivated grapes grown on chalky soils just west of Sancerre. Suave, rich in red fruits, and unapologetically mineral – basically your roast chicken's soulmate. Combines the generosity of the vintage with good freshness and terroir expression. On the palate it shows Beaune-like notes of ripe red strawberries, but this is too sanguine, linear and stony to not be Central vineyards. Notes of pine needles, leather, and mint pop up here and there to add a touch of complexity, as does the confident, chalk-infused finale.

Domaine Philippe Gilbert is one of the top producers in Menetou-Salon, a lesser-known AOC that borders Sancerre.
While obscure in comparison to its neighbor, Menetou-Salon has great terroirs; Gilbert's fantastic wines – some of the region's very best – are proof.
The domaine is equally adept at producing both mineral, fine-boned whites (Sauvignon Blanc) and silky, noble reds (Pinot Noir), both of which impress even at the entry-level domaine bottlings.
Grapes are hand-harvested and farming is biodynamic.

What importer Rosenthal Wine Merchant has to say about this wine...

Hand-harvested Pinot Noir undergoes a maceration of three weeks at which point it is racked into conical-shaped barrels to pass its malolactic fermentation and spend eighteen months in elevage on the fine lees before bottling. We import approximately 3600 bottles for the USA.

Loire Valley Wines

The Loire Valley is France’s greatest source of value for anyone looking for elegant, terroir-driven wines. Our collection celebrates the region’s great diversity, with the mineral-driven whites of Muscadet and Sancerre, the beautiful Chenin Blancs and Cabernet Francs from villages like Vouvray and Chinon, and natural wines from everywhere in the region. Sometimes wonderfully fresh and gulpable, sometimes serious and age-worthy, the prices are always very reasonable.
