PLOT SELECTION
Chosen with the highest care by Catherine Corbeau Mellot and Norbert Buchonnet during the latest harvest for its very typical style, among the Joseph Mellot vineyards on the silex terroir.
NOTES
Terroir Silex plot facing South / South-East. Optimal orientation, benefiting from the Loire temperate climate. Work in the vineyard: Plot certified in sustainable agriculture Vinification Hand-picked and destalked harvest. Following cold static settling and selection of press juice, fermentation takes place at low temperature in stainless steel tank. Aged on fine lees for seven months. Characteristics The color is pale gold with green highlights. It opens at once with a very expressive nose of white flowers such as lime blossom and acacia, then citrus fruits and flint. At first full-bodied in the mouth, it develops clarity on a good sharpened structure. Its lovely ending, lengthy and mineral, unambiguously reminds one of its Sancerre noble origin. Serving suggestions It can be enjoyed from now on with a goat cheese such as the Crottin de Chavignol, for a regional harmony. It is intended also for gastronomy combining fish with great white wines. Limited edition : 4,000 numbered bottles
