Alphonse Mellot Sancerre Blanc 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 'terroirs' of Domaine la Moussière are a true gift of past generations. Located at the very heart of the appellation on Kimmeridgian soil, this magnificent limestone gives way to the marls of Saint Doulchard and the chalky soil of Buzançais. This Sancerre is deliciously dry and herbaceous with a pungent, expressive bouquet of crystalline fruits and wonderful length. It would pair well with a number of imaginative menu choices: ish tartare, mussels "à la Charentaise", pike with white butter sauce, chanterelle mushroom omelette, baked Norway lobsters, trout meunière, pike in saffron or braised ham with white sauce.
