Alphonse Mellot Sancerre Les Romaines 2016
|Region||France, Loire Valley, Sancerre|
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.
A piercing rapier of a wine, with a dry, chiseled feel to the flint, chalk and chive notes that remain steely and focused through the finish. A light verbena hint echoes at the very end. Drink now through 2021. 510 cases made.
