WF00445

New product

Gleaming, cherry red in colour. Rich on the nose with very fruity hints – of small red fruit such as strawberries, blackberries and Morello cherries but also of spices. On the palate, the first sensations are soft and fleshy revealing blackcurrant and other red fruit. As a whole, the wine is well-structured with fine tannins leaving a long-lasting taste in the mouth.

More info

Domaine Jean-Teiller Menetou-Salon Rouge: 100% Pinot Noir from 5 hectares of vines with a minimum age of 30 years old. These vines are planted on deep clay and limestone soils. The sloped vineyards are in the communes of Menetou-Salon, Parassy, Aubinges and Vignoux sous les Aix. The grapes are harvested during the second half of September. They are destemmed and sorted on a table and then have a cold soak for 4 to 6 days. Daily punch downs take place during fermentation. Alcoholic fermentation begins with native yeasts and continues for a period of 8 to 15 days. Malolactic fermentation occurs naturally. The wine is then stored in stainless-steel tanks for 8-12 months before bottling. The wine shows bright intense aromas of cherry, blackcurrant and blackberry.  With some aeration, notes of smoke, cocoa and spice emerge. The tannins are fine. This light red wine makes a great partner to grilled red meats, rillettes and hard cheeses. 

Domaine Jean Teiller

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
