“Each Sancerre [from Mellot] is at its most elegant: discreetly herbaceous, a beautiful weave of citrus, oak and minerals.” Jacqueline Friedrich, (respected US wine critic based in the Loire).
“2014 is one heck of a vintage at chez Mellot. Those who crave substance, purity and tension in their white wines will be blown away. As usual, 50% of this wine undergoes large-format barrel fermentation - a fact that in no way compromises the fabulous line, elegance and energy - while 50% is raised in traditional concrete vats, before blending. The wines are aged on fine lees for a period of roughly 12 months, further enhancing the wine's famously deep, pulpy texture. The '14 is a flawlessly ripe and vibrant wine, flickering with intense, ripe citrus peel notes that hook you in before waves of energy-rich, layered fruit take over. This texture is balanced by threads of chalky, spicy freshness and a long, saline finish. A great La Moussière.” Bibendum Wine Co.
