Alphonse Mellot Sancerre La Moussiere 2020
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Sancerre|
La Moussière is the estate's flagship cuvee, its richness, energy and precision defining the Alphonse Mellot style. This 100% Sauvignon white wine has a floral and fruity nose combining white flowers with citrus fruits, a resplendent golden robe with glints of green, and a lively, refreshing palate. Fish tartare, smoked salmon or girolle mushroom omelette will go perfectly with La Moussière's freshness and purity. Although it is certainly a highly seductive wine in its present state of maturity, its full breadth will only reveal itself after a few years' cellaring.
The 2020 Sancerre La Moussière is an easygoing wine offering clean, pure flavors of pineapple, grass and pear. It's full and rounded with a whopping 15% alcohol, which no doubt has boosted the texture and palate weight.
