Sancerre La Grande Chatelaine Mellot 2016

75 cl
£31.40
La Grande Chatelaine is a high-class barrel-fermented Sancerre and represents the top wine from Domaine Joseph Mellot, a family owned estate with history dating back to 1513! The grapes for this wine are hand-harvested from the estate’s oldest vines, fermented in French oak (30% new) and matured for a further 20 months before release. Though richer and rounder in texture due to its vinification, this is still a wonderfully vibrant wine with a superb sense of energy and vitality. With only a subtle kiss of flavour imparted by the oak, it offers up classical notes of bright citrus, gooseberry, cut grass, stoney minerality and has a light salty tang to the finish.
