Everyone is looking for great Sancerre at around $20 and to be honest, it’s a little hard to find. Enter Menetou-Salon. Located a short distance south-west of Sancerre, Menetou-Salon often offers wines made from Sauvignon Blanc that rival those of its more expensive neighbor. This one from Philippe Gilbert is absolutely delicious, with delicate aromatics of lemon, herbs and chalk, and broad flavors that are both round and yet crisp and refreshing. Next time you’re looking for Sancerre, think Menetou-Salon.
