Sancerre Edmond Alphonse Mellot 2016 (750ML)
94+ Points, Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate: "The white-golden 2016 Sancerre Edmond is clear, fresh and fragrant on the coolish, flinty, pure, concentrated, refreshingly mineral and even iron-scented nose. From about 50- to 90-year-old vines on calcareous marl soils, this is a deep, pure, fresh, refined and elegant Sancerre with a tight mineral structure, yeasty layers, great intensity, almost Riesling-like acidity and finesse and a very long, complex, grippy, lip-smacking finish. This is a powerful and sustainable classic. The 2016 is rich and powerful but full of energy, grip and tension. A Sancerre worth waiting for. 13% alcohol. Tasted in November and January 2020."
95 points, Roger Voss, Wine Enthusiast: "Named after Alphonse Edmond, the father of present owner of Alphonse Mellot, this is the top wine from an always-impressive estate. Richness and concentration almost overwhelm the wine at this young stage, showing that it is set for aging. The acidity and biodynamically grown fruit of this powerful wine need to open up. Drink from 2020." 12/18
