Joseph Mellot, Sancerre Rosé, France 2014
Joseph Mellot is an institution in Sancerre; founded five centuries ago, it has stayed in the family ever since. Grown mainly on the region’s characterically flinty soils, this delicate Pinot Noir rosé opens up with floral and raspberry scents. Dry and crisp on the palate, it develops succulent juicy summer red fruit characters.
