Joseph Mellot / 2019 Sancerre La Gravelière

COUNTRY/REGION: France/Loire Valley.

GRAPES: 100% Sauvignon Blanc.

ABV: 13.5%

A powerful nose with floral and fruity aromas of passion fruit and orange. There is an elegant balance between freshness and structure.

VINEYARDS: The grapes are grown on predominantly siliceous soils. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmentally friendly manner, adapted to each terroir.

VINTAGE: The 2019 was overall a good vintage in Central Loire, despite the frost episodes in early spring. The summer was very hot, with the heat stress impacting the overall yields but the remaining fruit quality was outstanding. Despite the warm season, the Sauvignon Blanc retained its naturally high acidity, yielding balanced and harmonious wines.

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