About

The wines of the central Loire are dominated by the juggernaut appellations of Sancerre and to a slightly lesser degree, Pouilly-Fumé. At the far southern edge of the vast deposit of Kimmeridgian limestone and situated just southwest of Sancerre, Menetou-Salon is often viewed as a satellite or country cousin to its neighbor. The vines of Domaines Minchin and the Bertrand family’s traditional farmstead became La Tour Saint Martin in 1994 with the construction of a winery and his first vintage of Menetou-Salon. La Tour Saint Martin is currently 17 hectares in size with 10 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc. After realizing the detrimental effects of synthetic vineyard treatments in 1999, the Bertrand family made the decision to cease their routine use and adopted many sustainable practices: tiling the soils, adding organic compost to the soils, and green harvesting to balance the fruit development and vegetative growth of his vines. They harvest most of the vines by hand, and each plot is vinified separately. The Sauvignon Blanc is gently pressed and fermented in temperature-controlled, stainless steel tanks.
