Menetou-Salon, Clos de Ratier
This vineyard site is much prized for the high-toned, tight wire nerve that it imparts to the finished wine. With vines now approaching 30 years old, it often rivals the more prestigious Clos des Blanchais.
This is for Sauvignon purists. Excellent minerality explodes with hints of grapefruit, melon and some exotic fruit in the background. Bone dry, this wine offers a dizzying palate sensation that will complement anything calling for crisp white wine.
