Domaine Phillipe Gilbert Tasting - The Living Vine presents Domaine Phillipe Gilbert from the Mentou-Salon appellation located in the Loire Valley - a domain that has been committed to organic farming and biodynamics since 2005.
Phillipe Gilbert (owner/winemaker) was on hand to share his wines. Descendant of a winemaker lineage since 1768, Philippe Gilbert took over the management of the Domaine in 1998. With the oenologist Jean-Philippe Louis, he put a lot in the work in the vines and cellar, setting up the tools necessary to produce high-quality wines.
To be fully in accord with his convictions, he now runs the vineyard in compliance with organic farming requirements (a member of the Byodivin Union since 2007).
This tasting provided an opportunity to try the following wines:
2006 Menetou-Salon White ($26.95 est. 90 points WS)
