Alphonse Mellot Blanc Les Herses Sancerre 2014

750 mL bottle  |   VINTAGES#:  518290

The 2014 Sancerre Les Herses is very clear, pure and mineral on the nose, displaying white fruit aromas, but in a very discreet way and combined with herbal aromas. On the palate, this 13% alcohol wine is very clear, straight, extremely pure and very salty on the palate; it is a grippy Sancerre with a very stimulating expression of pure terroir. Endlessly salty, but also floral in the aftertaste. Great with fish and seafood as well as cheese. The wine is sourced in a 1.6-hectare, southeast-facing plot with averaging 45-year-old vines on flinty clay soils. Drink Date: 2016-2024. Score - 93. (Stephan Reinhardt,, Oct. 28, 2016)
