Alphonse Mellot, Sancerre Blanc, "Satellite"

Satellite, a cuvee resulting from the assemblage of five superb localities on the Chavignol hillsides in the Sancerre appellation. This 100% Sauvignon white wine has an elegant nose, a golden robe with paler glints about it, and a taste of ripe quince and grapefruit that leaves a gently refreshing fruitiness on the palate with notes of citrus peel and a crystalline iodine finish. Accompanied by oysters, a langoustine cassoulet or Crottin de Chavignol cheese, Satellite provides immediate pleasure and will gradually come to express its full complexity as the years pass.
