View from the Cellar: John Gilman - 91 Points - The Pelle family has been my favorite producers of Menetou-Salon since I was first introduced to the wines of Henri Pelle back in the mid-1990s. Their Morogues bottling is every bit as good as one would expect from this flagship estate in a top vintage, offering up a pure and nicely ripe bouquet of lime, tart melon, chalky soil tones, a dollop of fresh-cut grass and a topnote of orange blossoms.

On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied and nicely succulent in personality, with a fine core of fruit, lovely transparency and grip, sound framing acids and a long, complex and very classy finish. Good juice which is a touch softer than in some vintages, but that is the nature of the vintage, and it compensates for the slightly lower acids with simply beautiful purity. 2019-2024.
