We have always loved good Red Sancerre and Joseph Mellot’s is a wonderful Pinot Noir alternative to the much more expensive red Burgundy. It reminds us of a good Volnay, with the same elegance and soft tannins.
The vineyards are among Sancerre’s steep slopes with a flint rich soil and a cooler climate than in Burgundy, which adds to the freshness of the wine, with a gorgeous mineral backbone. Black cherry and blackberry flavours abound.
It is ready to drink now and being a light-ish Pinot is perfect for a really good lunch.
