"This is one of the entry-level ranges from this top producer. The wine is sophisticated. It has a strong mineral texture and fine ripe citrus and pear fruits shot through with acidity. With its finishing fruitiness, this is already an attractive wine, although it will be better from 2018." (WE)

Winery Notes:
This is one of Alphonse Mellot’s simpler wines, a deliciously fresh, summer meadow wine, with herbs and perfumed flowers and a stream of acidity running through.
