Why to buy: Having garnered consistent accolades—Food & Wine calls it “Sancerre at its best,” and Sommelier Journal named it their top Sauvignon Blanc in 2010—this 19th-generation (yes, 19th!) estate is renowned for its classic Sancerre.
Characteristics: A flinty, herbal bouquet followed by notes of lemon, grapefruit and melon on the palate, this wine is less bracing than new world Sauvignon Blanc. Its most obvious companion is seafood: Try it with oysters or a simply prepared fatty fish, like sardines or tuna.
Varietals: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Appellation: AOC Sancerre, Loire Valley
Alphonse Mellot—the 19th guy named Alphonse Mellot to make wine at this estate—is fanatic about preserving his family’s meticulous approach to winemaking, resulting in wines of exceptional quality, authenticity and style. Using biodynamic methods, they grow both Sauvignon Blanc and Pinot Noir.
