Reviews and Ratings

Greg Hughes rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Menetou-Salon is a French viticultural region in the upper area of the Loire River Valley that focuses on Sauvignon Blanc, though a small amount of red and rosé are made from Pinot Noir.
The wines tend to be crisp, clean, fragrant (floral, with flinty mineral notes). La Dame de Jacques Coeur is pretty representative of the style. It is probably unoaked, though some winemakers use neutral oak barrels to produce their wine.
The colour is a bright/pale lemon colour. There's a slight suggestion of dissolved CO2 when it was freshly opened. Tgat might indicate it was made anaerobically in stainless steel.
There are tons of interesting aromatics: citrus peel, green tea, petrichor, lily, and green apple.
Very soft and enjoyable. Refreshing acidity. Flavours of tea leaf, sweet pea, grapefruit, and unseasoned applesauce.
Don't be afraid of the screwcap you see on this wine. It is not reflective of the quality. It's a sign of attentiveness by the winemaker. These wines are meant to be enjoyed when they are crisp and youthful. Screwcaps ensure that they can be enjoyed this was for much longer (I have seen examples as old as 8 years under screwcap that still had plenty of vitality).
Pair it with fresh tiger shrimp with lemon and ginger.
From the Loire wine region, Chavet & Fils La Dame de Jacques Coeur Menetou-Salon Blanc (2015) is an old world Sauvignon Blanc with crisp lemon, lime, chalky, smoky minerality and wrapped up with a racy acidity. The vineyards are situated between Sancerre and Bourges. - Community Wine Reviews
