Decanter, December 2019
No expense is spared to make Mellot's wines, from his large volume La Moussiere to this dazzler. Hailing from kimmeridgian marls, this high density vineyard offers a powerful expression of Sancerre that powers home...   No expense is spared to make Mellot's wines, from his large volume La Moussiere to this dazzler. Hailing from kimmeridgian marls, this high density vineyard offers a powerful expression of Sancerre that powers home. There's red apple, citrus and almond-meal aromas but this isn't about the aromatics, it's about the no-holds-barred power, rich texture and sinew of acidity that pulls this firmly together. Drinking Window 2019 - 2026

The wine offers ripe fruit, bold quince and spice flavors, with hints of apricot. Structured and concentrated, it is a wine to savor, but not before 2019.

Wine Spectator, July 2018

Drink now through 2020. 625 cases made, 60 cases...   Racy and pure, with a core of peach and gooseberry fruit that flirts with a creamy feel but stays just on the taut and steely side through the flint-tinged finish.
