WF00443

New product

Golden yellow in colour with green tints. Assertive on the nose with hints of citrus, peach and white flowers. When swirled the bouquet further reveals its aromatic potential and complexity. The initial taste is crisp and full, soft yet well balanced thanks to its acidity. Notes of white flowers compliment the fruit aromas found on the nose. Fine length and good aftertaste.

More info

Domaine Jean Teiller Menetou Salon Blanc
This wine comes from 9 hectares including 3.5 hectares that are more than 25 years old. Vines grown on shallow clay and limestone soils within the communes of Menetou-Salon, Parassy and Aubinges. Harvest normally takes place during the second half of September. Grapes are destemmed, then see a gentle pressing to minimize the extraction of vegetal components. Fermentation in stainless steel tanks for 8-10 weeks and bottled in April or May.  The nose shows notes of citrus fruit, along with some peach, flowers and savory herbs. The wine shows good balance on the palate in which the fruit is uplifted by the acidity. Good length. An excellent aperitif or partner for shellfish, fish, chicken, cold salads or goat cheese.

Menetou Salon
Domaine Jean Tellier was founded in the 1950’s by Leon Millet. The domaine took forward strides in the 1970’s with the hard work of Jean and Denise Tellier (Leon Millet’s daughter) who believed in the future of Menetou-Salon and worked to enhance the appellation’s reputation. In 1986 their son Jean-Jacques (after finishing his career as a chef) and his wife Monique began working at the domaine.  Jean-Jacques and Monique’s daughter Patricia and her husband Olivier came into the fold in 2003 after completing their winemaking studies in Beaune. Jean Teiller died in 1996 but the domaine has retained his name as a tribute to him. 

The domaine covers an area of 18 hectares and is located on the best slopes of the communes of Menetou-Salon, Parassy, Aubinges, and Vignoux sous les Aix. 11 hectares are planted with Sauvignon Blanc and 7 with Pinot Noir. The vines average just over 30 years of age. Teiller, who has been certified organic since 2017, has not used any pesticides, chemical fertilizers or weed killers since 2010. All grapes are harvested by hand and then fermented using mostly indigenous yeasts and in mainly stainless steel. Most of the wine is then aged in stainless steel while 5% is aged in barrique. All wines are bottled in the best month according to the biodynamic calendar of
