Joseph Mellot Sincerite Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Brisk, dry and refreshing.
Grapes: 100% Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Loire Valley, France
Easy-to-drink Sauvignon Blanc that is unmistakably Loire Valley. Crisp green apple and pineapple flavors tinged with sharp lemon oil and grassy notes. A little hint of gooseberry, as well.
The Joseph Mellot winery was founded in Sancerre over five centuries ago. In 1698, Cesar Mellot was tasked with advising King Louis XIV in regal wine selection! To this day, the estate has remained family owned. With exceptional growth, Joseph Mellot is the only estate to have vineyards planted in all of the Centre-Loire appellations.
The Sincerite's label of "Vin de Pays du Val de Loire" indicates that the grapes are harvested from any of the four main sub-regions of the Loire Valley: Central Vineyards, Touraine, Anjou Saumur and Pay Nantais. Each sub-region is known for its dominant varietals and successful expressions of terroir.
