Sancerre les Romains Alphonse Mellot Premier 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

95 Points, Stephan Reinhardt, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate: “The 2014 Sancerre les Romains reflects the combination of flint on limestone soils in a 1.2-hectare plot with vines averaging 65 years of age. The wine opens extremely pure and clear on the nose, with tea and floral aromas intertwined with white fruit and lemon flavors. On the palate, this is a very pure, fresh and firmly structured Sancerre provided with great precision, tension and length. There is almost no fruit in this bare wine, at least no charm, but it does have purity, austerity, tension and lots of complexity. A great Sancerre!” 10/16
