In Menetou-Salon Patricia Luneau (née Teiller) and her husband Olivier are raising the bar at their model, family-run estate. Having studied in Burgundy and New Zealand this forward thinking couple have a strong sense of tradition (instilled by Patricia's dad Jean-Jacques who is still active in the business) but a questing desire to produce the best wines that they possibly can. They are experimenting with natural vine treatments while in the cellar they are deploying wild yeasts and long fermentations.
The Domaine Teiller blanc has pineapple and grapefruit notes on the bouquet and a palate of succulent (almost tropical) fruit and a dry, elegant finish. The rosé (from Pinot Noir) exhibits similar finesse and has a lovely pale pink colour and subtle red berry flavours. A red, also from Pinot Noir, comes into its own when lightly-chilled and is bursting with ripe hedgerow fruit offset by supple tannins.
