Domaine de Chatenoy 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

An undiscovered source for excellent Sauvignon Blanc can be found in the appellation of Menetou-Salon whose sloping vineyards touch on those of Sancerre. Touring the vineyards with Pierre Clement the young owner of the Domaine de Chatenoy one learns that Menetou is 100% Kimmeridgian marl unlike the varied soil types of Sancerre. The appellation has a strange irregular elongated shape which follows this vein of soil type. The soil is clay marne layered with limestone. This ancient ocean-bottom vineyard is full of crustacean fossils. Members of the Clement family are recorded as winegrowers in 1560 but it wasn't until 1709 that they purchased the Domaine de Chatenoy. As president of the appellation Pierre Clement is very proud of the success of Menetou Salon and of Domaine de Chatenoy. Menetou Salon is quite the rage in Paris restaurants now and he cannot supply enough though his domaine has expanded from 12 hectares to 55 hectares in just 15 years. He produces 50000 cases of wine a year 2/3 of it wh
