Pelle, Menetou-Salon Morogues Blanchais, 2018

$30.99

Blanchais is Pelle's top wine, and it is a real killer. It comes from a plot of 50 year-old vines on Kimmeridgian marl, vinified in a combination of various wood formats and stainless steel. This has salinity and depth for days. Give it a little time to open up.

If you like fresh, mineral-driven white wine, you'll go bonkers for the wines of Paul-Henry Pellé. This guy is a star. Qualitatively, these wines can go tête-a-tête with top-shelf Sancerre, but they're a great deal less expensive. Farming is organic.
Pellé uses both stainless steel and wood, not only for élevage, but fermentation as well. This explains why the wines have bracing citric electricity tempered by a suave, creamy texture – "lemon curd" often pops up in our tasting notes.
