Alphonse Mellot Cuvee Edmond Sancerre 2016

"The flagship cuvée, in my mind anyway. From the same Kimmeridgian terroir as La Moussière, of course, but from a small and select parcel of older vines, aged between 80 and 100 years. Vinified in oak, as always, and this is a sample taken from cuve where this wine currently rests, awaiting bottling. A wonderfully expressive style on the nose, with the scents of musky perfume...

Product Description

"The flagship cuvée, in my mind anyway. From the same Kimmeridgian terroir as La Moussière, of course, but from a small and select parcel of older vines, aged between 80 and 100 years. Vinified in oak, as always, and this is a sample taken from cuve where this wine currently rests, awaiting bottling. A wonderfully expressive style on the nose, with the scents of musky perfumed limestone, rubbed with citrus oils. It feels heady, with a wonderfully intense and pure palate, broad, supple and sinewy, but with such surging energy and citrus, orange-pith confidence. It feels complete and if any wines here remind me of the work of a certain vigneron from Pouilly-Fumé it is this one. It is bright with fabulous acidity. Beautifully long, too. This is a superb example of the Edmond cuvée." 95-97 points Chris Kissack, thewinedoctor.com
