RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

I never liked Rose wines. i tried this wine and i knew that it wouldnt be my last rose. I loved this wine. i can drink this any warm summer day. Pairs great with berries and watermelon.
Definitely good, but without the depth of a lot of Sancerre. Very tart, nice minerality, and an overall solid structure. Great apero wine, but it reminded me more of a Muscadet than anything else.

Klares, helles Gelb mit leicht grünen Reflexen. Zitrusfrüchte, weisse Blüten, wunderschöne Noten von weissem Pfirsich und Birne. Angenehme Bestätigung der nasalen Aromen auch am Gaumen. Schönes Finish mit mineralischen Noten.
With all the breed of the noble Pinot Noir, this Rosé combines pure flavors of strawberries and raspberries with a light mineral core, adding just a touch of spice on a lingering long finish.
The Mellots are proud of their history. The name is mentioned in archives dating back to 1513; one assumes they are as much a part of Sancerre as the terres blanches that make the region so famous for its Sauvignon Blanc. In this bottle you have an example of how family history, well placed vineyards and integrity in the cellar come together to create a cerebral Sancerre worthy of note. Mellot considers them “works of art,” inspired by the same savoir-faire that goes into a transcendental concerto. 30+ ha bathed in full sunshine, lead to ripe sauvignon citrus on the nose. The wine’s rounded minerality speaks of the unique shale soils and kimmeridgian subsoils, where the roots nestle. 50% fermented in truncated vat to allow for a mildly oxidative style of Sauvignon, with the rest in new barrique and matured on its lees for 7-8 months. Pair with mushroom omelette, trout in white wine sauce, gougères and the region’s Crottin Chavignol.
"Made from 100% Chardonnay- has the nose of a Corton and the mouthfeel of a Meursault. Rich, without being overbearing, this is an absolute treat from Mellot!" "As the 'Les Penitents' name implies, to farm these steep vineyards requires a quasi-religious devotion - a worthy charity indeed - our drinking pleasure! In 2013, this historic estate celebrates 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 five years ago." -Importer
