With the shortage of Sancerre in the US lately (what is there not a shortage of right now?!?!), and Sancerre prices on the rise, La Clef du Recit Menetou-Salon has become even more of a screaming value of late.
While the estate has been around for decades, Le Clef du Recit is newly helmed by Anthony Girard, whose family is well-known as Loire Valley vintners. His brother runs the family biz and young Anthony had a chance to buy some sweet, sweet soil. What is sweet soil in Sancerre? Think Terres Blanches, meaning white earth, or a lot of fractured limestone. The fancy wine people call it Kimmeridgian marl, which maybe you’ve heard about. If not, no worries. It’s near the town of Récy, so the “key” (clef) to the “story” (Récit) is that the land and exposure are ideal for unlocking the character of nervy, mineral laden Sauvignon Blanc, happy to be in such a special place.
The added bonus? Menetou is a satellite appellation to Sancerre, without the Sancerre prices. Of course, that still usually means wines north of $30 (like THIS).
We are here to tell you, if white Sancerre is your thing, you need to be all over this bottle of wine. It is a dead ringer for some of the top estates in the Sancerre appellation like Vacheron, at half the price. You'll also be able to impress all your wine snob friends by dropping some Menetou-Salon wine knowledge on them :)
Stay dry everyone! A perfect day for curbside pickup!
