Product description

Bertrand Minchin comes from a family that tended orchards and cereal crops. He became passionate about wine when he returned from his studies in 1987 and decided to restore and replant the vineyards of Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir that his grandfather had planted. These vines and his family’s farmstead became La Tour Saint Martin in 1994, with the construction of a winery and his first vintage of Menetou-Salon. La Tour Saint Martin is currently 17 hectares with 10 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc and 7 of Pinot Noir.

In 2003 Bertrand purchased 15 hectares in Valençay; the soils of chalky sand with flint gravel differ from the Kimmeridgian limestone of Menetou-Salon, but farming and quality are similar. Situated on the southern bank of the Cher, Valençay is considered the southeastern viticultural continuation of the vineyards of the Touraine. Like Touraine, there is a wide variety of grapes permitted in the region, including Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, and Arbois for the whites, and Gamay, Cabernet Franc, Cot, and Pinot Noir for the reds. Valençay is the rare instance when a French appellation name refers to both cheese (established in 1998) and wine (elevated to AOP status in 2004).
