Joseph Mellot Sancerre Blanc La Chatellenie 2016

Pale gold in colour with a green hue. Expressive nose with notes of citrus fruits and box. A harmonious approach on the palate, supple and delicate with a pleasant freshness. A lingering aromatic finale backed up by a long mineral finish due to the flinty terroir.

Wine SpectatorA lively, focused version, with a beam of lemon peel and white peach backed by a twinge of gooseberry. Shows a good flinty inlay through the finish. Drink now through 2018. 16,000 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis steely mineral wine is still young. It has the crispest apple and lemon fruits as well as a tight mineral texture. It obviously needs to age with its nervy character keeping the more generous fruit in check. Drink from 2018.
