Alphonse Mellot Sancerre La Moussiére 2016

La Moussiére Sancerre from Alphone Mellot is a Sancerre of superb elegance and concentration. This is due to the unsurpassed passion for excellence in the vineyard management. This outstanding Sancerre has delightful grassy notes which is complemented by the herbaceous character which is typical of Aphone Mellot Sancerre. La Moussiére Sancerre is delicious with all forms of shell fish as you would expect but it pairs perfectly with oysters and even will complement goats cheese dishes.

Winery Information

The Mellot family first made wine in 1513. During the 19th Century Alphonse established a tavern in Sancerre, and today the 18th and 19th generations of the family - both Alphonse - control the business that grew out of the little tavern. Alphonse senior took control of the estate in 1970, and began focusing on quality rather than volume. Today the vineyard owned by the family is a manageable 47 hectares or thereabouts, farmed largely organically. Alphonse junior has now taken the lead, and today works with his father to make and promote the wines. Maximum emphasis is placed in vineyard management to ensure the fruit is fully ripened and at optimum sugar and acidity balanced levels.

Vinification
The grapes underwent sequential pneumatic pressing, followed by static settling at a temperature below 10C for about 48 hours. Half the juice was fermented in vats and half in new casks at temperature between 18C and 23C.

Viticulture
Biodynamic vineyard management. Vines are trained with Guyot or Royat Cordon methods.

Tasting Note
Alphonse Mellot Sancerre La Moussiére is deliciously dry and herbaceous with a pungent, expressive bouquet of crystalline fruits and wonderful length.

Everyday Serving Suggestion
At 10°-12°C as an aperitif or to accompany oysters shell fish, and goats cheese.
