Sancerre 'La Demoiselle' 2018 Alphonse Mellot, Loire
The Mellot family has been producing wine in Sancerre since 1513. Today, Alphonse Snr and Alphonse Jr, the 18th and 19th generation, craft biodynamic, single-vineyard Sancerre from 60-year-old vines. Aged for ten months in wooden vats, from one of the best vintages in 50 years, which Alphonse Snr called "mythical", this is deep and rich with crystalline notes of grapefruit, gunflint and oak.
This is an outstanding example of a true Sancerre crisp white and 14% ABV, stunning.
