        Rich, complex oak-aged Sancerre

        Background

        Established in 1513, and in the same family ever since. Sancerre is the spiritual home of Sauvignon Blanc and the Mellot family has been one of custodians

        Tasting notes

        A yellow-golden hue with green tints. Nose has opulent yellow-flesh fruits nuanced with oak. Palate is elegant and smooth with good mouthfeel with richness and complexity. Mineral notes, with a hint of mandarin and citrus zest along with subtle toasted flavours bringing a nice freshness. Well-balanced with good length.

        Winemaking

        The grapes are from from the oldest vines on the estate, planted over 35 years ago on pebble rich clay-limestone slopes known locally as "caillottes". The wine was fermented and aged in oak barrels (30% new oak) Fermentation lasts 2 to 7 months and the wine is aged for 20 months. Barrel ageing adds a new dimension to the wine`s structure giving vanilla flavours and good ageing potential.

        Food pairings

        Monkfish, Seafood Risotto and of course, goat's cheese.
