2016 Sancerre Cuvée Edmond Alphonse Mellot Loire Valley White

St Barth’s Wine

Together with Generation XIX, Cuvée Edmond is Sancerre at its most complex and detailed. The Edmond Vintage is produced from old La Moussière vines between 40 and 87 years old and follows biodynamic principles. The vineyard has a south-southwest exposure with soils of limestone and clay. The wine, Sauvignon Blanc, is aged on fine lees for 10-14 months.

With a flinty, herbaceous nose of real intensity, with pears, greengage and wet stones. It delivers everything you could ask of great white wine - aromatic complexity, structure, substance, profound minerality and age-worthiness. It is very tightly wound but after breathing it shows more chalk, lime, flint and even some pear and more exotic notes. On the palate, there is a superb balance with a long, intense finish. It's a wine of vivid, uplifting character, rich in aromas of verbena, lime and crushed, fresh herbs and possessing remarkable, unyielding energy.
