    Winemaker Notes

    Golden yellow in color with green tints. Assertive on the nose with hints of citrus, peach and white flowers. When swirled the bouquet further reveals its aromatic potential and complexity. The initial taste is crisp and full, soft yet well-balanced thanks to its acidity. Notes of white flowers compliment the fruit aromas found on the nose. Fine length and good aftertaste.

    Wonderfully accompanies fish, shellfish, poultry and white meat as well as goats’ cheese but works equally well as an aperitif.

    Domaine Jean Teiller, France
    The Domaine Jean Teiller is a family business founded in the 1950s by Leon Millet. It founded its true wine-growing vocation with Jean and Denise Teiller (Leon Millet's daughter) who believed in the future of Menetou-Salon and worked to enhance their appellation's reputation.

    In 1986, their son Jean-Jacques, following a career as a chef, and his wife Monique, came to join them. In 2003, their daughter Patricia and her husband Olivier also came to join them.

    Jean Teiller died in 1996, but the domain retained his name as a tribute to him.

    Praised for its stately Renaissance-era chateaux, the picturesque Loire valley produces pleasant wines of just about every style. Just south of Paris, the appellation lies along the river of the same name and stretches from the Atlantic coast to the center of France.

    The Loire can be divided into three main growing areas, from west to east: the Lower Loire, Middle Loire, and Upper/Central Loire. The Pay Nantais region of the Lower Loire—farthest west and closest to the Atlantic—has a maritime climate and focuses on the Melon de Bourgogne variety, which makes refreshing, crisp, aromatic whites.

    The Middle Loire contains Anjou, Saumur and Touraine. In Anjou, Chenin Blanc produces some of, if not the most, outstanding dry and sweet wines with a sleek, mineral edge and characteristics of crisp apple, pear and honeysuckle. Cabernet Franc dominates red and rosé production here, supported often by Grolleau and Cabernet Sauvignon. Sparkling Crémant de Loire is a specialty of Saumur. Chenin Blanc and Cabernet Franc are common in Touraine as well, along with Sauvignon Blanc, Gamay and Malbec (known locally as Côt).

    The Upper Loire, with a warm, continental climate, is Sauvignon Blanc country, home to the world-renowned appellations of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. Pinot Noir and Gamay produce bright, easy-drinking red wines here.

    Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
