Alphonse Mellot Sancerre Les Romains 2021

  • v91-92


Available for:
Les Romains is a cuvee typified by a combination of flint and limestone; its name refers to the remains of a Roman road crossing the plot. This 100% Sauvignon white wine has a nose opening to delicate notes of white flowers, walnut oil and chalk, with just a hint of the sea, a pale yellow robe with glints of emerald green and a voluptuous palate mixing quince, white currants and grapefruit. Drunk alongside moules marinières, saffroned clam soup or sea bream in a salt crust, Les Romains will amaze by its freshness and precise minerality - a versatile wine that will delight in its present state and go on to reveal its full breadth after a few years cellaring.
  • v91-92

Les Romains is a flint and chalk parcel that sits on the outskirts of the town of Sancerre, and the 2021 vintage gives a refined and elegant expression. There's tenderness through the core, which is scented with nettle and elderflower notes, pear and just-ripe pineapple, which linger long on the finish. Tasted as a finished sample in tank.
