Domaine Jean- Paul Picard, Menetou-Salon, Loire, France, 2022

Producer Profile

The Domaine Jean-Paul Picard et Fils is a family run estate cultivating 14 hectares of vines, all of which are situated on the slopes of Bué and are amongst the best sites in the Sancerre region.

Picard practises ‘lutte raisonnée’, where chemical treatments are used only when necessary and they plough to loosen the top soils and help develop micro-bacterial life. The wines are well balanced and very aromatic, full of fruit and subtle hints of minerality.


100% Sauvignon Blanc, from vines averaging 15 years. They are planted on one of the appellation’s best parcels, 20km away from their Sancerre vineyards, in Morogues.


Gentle, pneumatic pressing. The juice rests in tank at a very low temperature to stabilize, then it is settled off the lees (débourbage). The young wine is left on its fine lees for a minimum of 3 to 4 months. Fined and lightly filtered before being bottled.

Oak Ageing

No oak ageing

Tasting Note

Pale golden yellow colour this Menetou-Salon from Domaine Jean- Paul Picard has an expressive nose of exotic fruit and intense aromas of zesty citrus fruits. A dry wine with great balance, best enjoyed within 3-4 years of the vintage.

Food Matching

A wonderful partner for seafood and in particular with oysters. Or simply enjoy as an aperitif.
