Wine Region: Loire Valley - Sancerre - France
Grape: 100% Sauvignon Blanc.
Tasting notes: "On the east bank of the Loire, facing Sancerre, this vineyard has produced a richly textured wine. It is just beginning to soften, bringing the ripe citrus and kiwi flavors into sharp focus. The wine will be ready from 2023." Roger Voss, The Wine Enthusiast
Expert Rating: The Wine Enthusiast, 90/100.
About the winery: In 2013, this historic estate celebrated its 500th anniversary – 19 successive generations of winegrowers in the Mellot family. Today Alphonse Jr. is in total charge, having taken over the reigns from his father Alphonse Sr. fully fifteen years ago. The property, known as La Moussiere, is now at the height of quality for white wines world-wide. All farming is organic and certified biodynamic, with an elite team in the vineyards focused on low yields and ideal ripeness. Their Sauvignons have acquired a rare precision and each parcel is well-defined, perhaps even more so with the reds.
