From the Cellar: Nicolas Girard, Menetou-Salon 2010

Located in the heart of France, on the banks of the Loire River is the tiny village of Menetou-Salon. Specializing in producing elegant and mineral driven whites wines from the Sauvignon Blanc grape. 

We are featuring Domaine Nicolas Girard and his 2009 Menetou-Salon. The wine is made from 100% estate grown grapes, and a tiny estate it is, coming in at just 1.2 acres in Menetou-Salon and an additional 2.4 acres in Sancerre. This tiny amount of production allows the winemaker to take the utmost time and care in making the wine. 

Try it with Chef Gerry's flash fried Beau Soleil oysters with whole grain mustard remoulade and pickled shallots.
