Domaine Henry Pelle

Situated right in the extreme east of the Loire Valley, a stone's throw from Bourges lies the charming little village of Morogues, with fields, meadows and slopes clustered around its very beautiful church. The Domaine Henry Pellé cellars are at the foot of one of these slopes. Wine has been produced for years in Morogues, and though the Pellés have been winegrowers for generations, it was in 1959 (when the Menetou-Salon appellation was created) that the history of this very young appellation and that of the Pellé family became intertwined.

The vines grow in Kimmeridgean clay-limestone marl made up of myriads of minute fossilized oyster shells called locally terre blanche or white soil. The estate practices organic viticulture (soil, environment, fauna) and by working the soil and green harvesting are able to highlight the terroir and control yields.
