Joseph Mellot / 2015 Sancerre "La Chatellenie".

COUNTRY/REGION: France/Loire Valley.

GRAPES: 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

ABV: 13%

UNIT: 1 x 75cl Bottle.

WINEMAKER NOTES: Sauvignon Blanc thrives in the flint rich soils of Sancerre, giving it its distinctive gun-flint flavours. Aged on it's fine lees preserving all its freshness and depth.

VINEYARDS: The vines are grown on ancient soils from the Cretaceous period. This flint rich siliceous clay emparts the subtle hint of gun-flint. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted for each terroir.

VINTAGE: 2015 was a challenging year as rains and higher temperatures than usual disturbed the flowering season. Consequently, the yields were lower than in previous years. Fortunately, a very dry summer allowed the grapes to ripen fully and to be in good health before harvest. In the same way that 2014 was a challenging but star year, 2015 is a great vintage that has given very fruity, well-balanced and rich wines with great depth.

WINEMAKING: Following on from cold static settling, the fermentation takes place at low temperatures in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

DELIVERY: All our wines are stored in our importers bonded warehouse’s, which have the optimum environment for fine wine storage, by carefully regulating temperature, humidity and other microclimatic factors.
