Alphonse Mellot Sancerre La Moussiere 2015


SKU 3273390117505


Lively like the look in your eyes, sweet like a kiss. Very fine gold colour with a green sheen. Its nose has a flowery fruity bouquet. Being pure and honest it is seducer from the outset. Flowers flit around, trees bend down to give their most beautiful fruits to us and the air we breathe is so sweet in this garden full of sweetness that it is intoxicating. Lively, supple and welcoming taste. Predominantly honest in a welcoming balance, it reflects a pretty grape, a fine harvest in the singing and laughter of the men and women pickers. It tells us of work well done in the divine order and Nature's kindness. It is fair, and all one expected and to cap it all there is happiness there. Matching wine and food: Fish tartare, mussels "à la Charentaise", pike with white butter sauce, chanterelle mushroom omelette, baked Norway lobsters, trout meunière, pike in saffron, braised ham with white sauce, tripe cooked the Caen way, Chavignol goatsmilk cheeses, puff pastries...

Wine AdvocateDisplaying white fruit and floral aromas along with lemon flavors, the 2015 Sancerre La Moussière is very clear and smoky on the nose, which indicates a picture-book Sancerre. Grown on kimmeridgian marl and limestone soils, La Moussière is the estate’s flagship cuvée insofar as it represents the Alphonse Mellot style in perfection. The wine is full-bodied, rich and round, a very intense and fruity, but also well-structured wine with firm grip and authentic character.
