Great minerality. Like licking a stone.

Chalk, grapefruit, slight herbs, some pith, minerality - notable freshness

Very pure grapefruit with chalky minerality. Barely noticeable pyrazines. So much fruit I almost thought it was NZ. #sancerre #blindtasting #alphonsemellot

In the middle of a humid heatwave this is slipping down enormously well.

Crispy delicious Sancerre with citrus and plenty of mineral notes. Great producer. If you let it warm up slightly you will get all the creamy buttery flavours. Awesome!
