Food Pairings for Table Domaine Henry Pelle Menetou-Salon "Morogues" H. Pelle
Situated right in the heart of France, in the extreme east of the Loire Valley, a stone's throw from Bourges lies the charming little Berry village of Morogues with its fields, meadows and slopes clustered around its very beautiful church. The Domaine Henry Pellé cellars are nestled at the foot of one of these slopes. Even though wine has been produced for years in Morogues, and even though the Pellés have been winegrowers for generations, it was only in 1959 (when the Menetou-Salon appellation was created) that the history of this very young appellation and that of the Pellé family became inter-twined. Menetou used to be poor man's Sancerre but not anymore. This wine is just as good as anything from its more famous neighbour. Crisp, zingy and fresh with delicious gooseberry, lime and mineral notes it makes a wonderful partner to fish and shellfish, goats cheese salads and lighter dishes.
