The story of the Domaine Philippe Gilbert gives splendid evidence to the fact that our world of wine is endlessly fascinating and encompasses more than the technical aspects of growing grapes and turning them into wine. Philippe Gilbert was a dramaturg, producing and also writing plays for the theatre. In fact, one of his creations, a poetic and philosophical contemplation of the horrors of the Srebrenica massacre in Bosnia, was performed in the States. He is, then, a vigneron with a unique background. Nevertheless, he is very much the vigneron, having returned to take over the direction of his family domaine located in the hamlet of Faucards in the midst of the Menetou-Salon appellation. Having traveled the world and explored the intellectual side of the arts, Philippe still felt the pull of the soils that his father worked for many years, recognizing that, as his father prepared to retire, the domaine would no longer exist as it was without his participation. This is all understandable once it is understood that a certain Francois Gilbert turned from being a tavern-keeper to establish this domaine all the way back in 1768.

Gilbert's 2014 Menetou-Salon displays a clear, dense and elegant, very well-defined bouquet of ripe, yet also fresh white fruits along with some leafy/vegetal and stony flavors. This is a very natural expression of the Kimmeridgean clay-limestone terroir in which this wine is selected from six different parcels, with averaging 30-year-old vines that were planted quite dense (up to 7,300 per hectare). Full-Bodied and dense, but also fresh and elegant on the palate, this Menetou reveals a long and intense finish with a lingering salinity and stimulating grip. Great expression here and a pretty coolish soul. Fermented with natural years in stainless steel, bottled in July 2015.
