2017 Henry Pellé "Clos des Blanchais" Menetou-Salon Blanc

SKU #1499811 92 points John Gilman

Outer quote mark The Pellé family’s bottling from the vineyard of les Blanchais is raised in a combination of seventy percent older foudres and four hundred liter barrels and thirty percent stainless steel tanks. This was the first single vineyard cuvée bottled on its own by the domaine, back in the decade of the 1980s, and I poured this wine by the glass back in my sommelier days. The 2017 les Blanchais is excellent, offering up a precise and complex bouquet of lemon, pink grapefruit, a touch of gooseberry, limestone minerality, a dollop of grassiness and a topnote of citrus blossoms. On the palate the wine is full-bodied, focused and mineral-driven, with a good core of fruit, fine focus and grip and a long, vibrant and complex finish. Good juice (as always). Inner quote mark (5/2020)

91 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark Crisp, pure white fruit flavors from a single parcel give this wine a delicious line of freshness. Acidity brings a tang to the mouth, hinting at minerality. The wine is ready to drink. (RV) Inner quote mark (1/2020)
