While his namesake cycled and distinguished himself on the road, Philippe Gilbert of wine was more at home in the vineyard and in the cellar! Located in Menetou-Salon, Domaine Philippe Gilbert represents 29 hectares of biodynamic land. Always concerned about his work, Philippe offers us wines whose balance borders on perfection, and which bring immense pleasure... Do you wonder what a living wine is? Then taste Philippe's wines!Lire plus Learn more
Since the founding father François Gilbert, who chose viticulture in 1768, the Gilbert family has always made wine. The 29 hectares of the property are planted on hillsides, for parity in Sauvignon and Pinot Noir, on sedimentary soils of Kimmeridgian, marl, clay and limestone soil.
My grain of salt was the conversion of the entire estate to organic and especially biodynamic farming between 2005 and 2007. We seek the deep balance of the plant which is in harmony with nature. The ageing time is long enough (one year in white almost two years in red), in order not to disturb the natural rhythm of the wine.
The estate's latest news is the launch of the "Vino-lok" glass stopper on all vintages, starting with the 2014 Menetou-Salon blanc.
