Most Sancerres these days are relatively young, simple, fresh offerings, for which merchants increasingly charge a pretty penny! This prestige cuvée from Joseph Mellot is from the 2017 vintage and quite simply blew us away upon tasting.
From the Loire estate’s oldest vines on clay & limestone, this stunning wine has an opulent nose of quince, pear, citrus zest, white blossom, brioche & dried vanilla pod. On the palate this is richly profiled which a gorgeous texture, fresh acidity, and just a hint of smoke on the long, mouth-watering finish. This is a sublime white you simply must try.
