A beautiful dry, mineral, stone fruit Sancerre - a real step up.
Tasting Notes: A key name for Central Loire wines, here is a stellar Sancerre from Domaine Joseph Mellot. This is a precise and complex Sauvignon Blanc from the 2017 vintage. Notes of yellow peach and Mirabelle plum fill the nose, followed by rich yellow fruits - apricot, mirabelle plums and deftly integrated oak on the palate.
Barrel fermented for extra depth, and wonderful full flavoured body. 30% in New Oak, 35% in 1year old barrels, 30% in 2 year old barrels.
Food Match : Perfect with Salmon, Monkfish & Scallops.
Grape : Sauvignon Blanc
Producer : Jospeh Mellot
Country : Loire, France
