Alphonse Mellot “La Moussiere” Sancerre
Many years ago a visit to the Mellot cellar door in the village of Sancerre gave me an understanding of how fantastic wine made from Sauvignon Blanc could be. Sancerre is essentially an isolated hill in the middle of the Loire Valley and its history of making wine goes back centuries. The Mellot family also go back that far with the current Alphonse being the 19th generation to carry the name. La Moussiere is a single vineyard wine from a 30-hectare block. The tasting note could only come from France. “Lively like the look in your eyes, sweet like a kiss. Being pure and honest, it is a seducer from the outset. There is happiness there.” After all that you have to try it.
