Winemaker's Tasting Notes
La Moussiere is the crown jewel cuvee of this estate. Its unique fruitfulness and clarity truly define the style of an Alphonse Mellot. Voluptuous floral notes on the nose envelop the palate with a touch of white flowers and citrus; leaving a crisp refreshing finish.
We are the only estate in Sancerrois to have the prestigious "hors concours" (beyond competition) distinction bestowed upon us, and the La Moussière vineyard is our cornerstone. Its terroirs, precious gifts from generations past, lie at the very heart of the Sancerre appellation. La Moussière is the estates's flagship cuvee, its richness, energy and precision defining the Alphonse Mellot style.
Grown on the famed Kimmeridgian chalk of Sancerre, this wine is intense, tightly wound with young fruits and acidity. With its power, dense green-fruit flavors and steely edge, the wine is set for aging. Drink from 2022. Organic and biodynamic. - Roger Voss
