Emmanuelle Mellot 2020 Sancerre "Ma Colline", Loire Valley
The fruit for this Sancerre come from a vineyard that was planted in the 1980s and is all farmed biodynamically , all of which is hand harvested. Aged in both stainless steel and large old French oak barrels, which gives this Sancerre a gorgeous balance between precision and silky feeling. Kind of sexy in that way. The aromas here remind me of walking the stalls at a farmer's market, just vibrant, fresh, floral, green, fruity, complex and super intoxicating. You will have a hard time keeping your nose out of the glass long enough to taste the wine but when you do, man-o-man, what a wine. Get what you can while you can, there is very little to be had.
