Product Description

The beautiful, gently rolling Moussière vineyard with its gently cultivated, incredibly rocky, limestone-rich soils, lies on the ancient Saint-Doulchard belt which forms a part of the great Kimmeridgian chain (à la Chablis). This terroir coupled with Mellot's meticulous biodynamic farming and low yields, is responsible for some of Sancerre's most striking and atypical wines. Those who crave flesh, purity and tension in their white wines will be well advised to jump aboard. As usual, 50% of this wine underwent fermentation in huge wooden fermenters and was raised in oak casks--a fact that in no way compromises the fabulous purity, elegance and energy. The balance of the wine was meanwhile fermented and raised in traditional concrete vats, before blending. All of the wine was aged on fine lees for a period of roughly 12 months, further enhancing the wine's famously deep and pulpy texture. The 2018 is simply a great La Moussière. It's a deep and mineral Sancerre without a hint of Sauvignon grassiness. Rather you can expect waves of crushed lime, lemon pith and nectarine fruit along with refreshingly tangy and earthy mineral notes. It's bold and bracing Sancerre with (quality) Chablis-like tension and a long, harmonious finish. Simply magic.
