Alphonse Mellot 'La Moussiere' Sancerre 2006

Sancerre is a wonderful thing: the understated elegant version of Sauvignon Blanc. Alphonse Mellot is one of my favourite good value producers in Sancerre, and this particular wine's tart apple nose became a wonderful blend of pear, apple, river stones, and lime. The texture was smooth, light and very elegant in the mouth. Especially good with Crottin de Chauvignol cheese.

Very Good+
$35 at Marquis
