Alphonse Mellot Sancerre La Moussiere 2019

Very fine gold colour with a green sheen. A refreshing bouquet of white flowers and citrus fruits. A medium body, very well balanced between maturity and freshness with a long and savoury length.

93 Points, Wine Enthusiast Magazine "Grown on the famed Kimmeridgian chalk of Sancerre, this wine is intense, tightly wound with young fruits and acidity. With its power, dense green-fruit flavors and steely edge, the wine is set for aging. Drink from 2022. Organic and biodynamic." (12/01/ 2020)

18.5/20 Points, Candice Chow "Bright, pale yellow with a slight green hue, even colour throughout. The nose is gentle and lifting, with flinty minerals overlays aromas of ripe lemon, grapefruit and zest, white spice, floral and a suggestion of green mango. Medium-bodied, aromas of lemon, grapefruit, and zest interweave a hint of peach and blossom followed by prickling white spice, lingering with crushed rocks and flinty minerals. The mouthfeel is almost chalky, along a smooth, oily flow carrying delicate spice and minerals through the palate. The fruit is ripe with an excellent balance of weight and soft acidity. This is an immensely elegant, textural Sancerre with balanced fruit, floral and flinty mineral details. Match with shellfish and goat's cheese tart over the next 3-4 years. 100% Sauvignon Blanc from a single vineyard in Loire Valley, fermented to 13% alc." Oct 2021
