Sancerre

Domaine Joseph Mellot 2014

S$1900 Flacon of 10cl

This Sancerre offers a refined and delicate nose, opening up into floral and fruit-forward aromas with a hint of candied lemon. On the palate, it displays a rich intensity of fruit and good fullness in the mouth. All of this is balanced by a lovely lively character that makes Sancerre La Grande Châtelaine a perfect partner for fish in sauce.
