2009 Alphonse Mellot La Moussiére Sancerre

13.0% alc., $43.84. Imported by Domaine Select Imports, NY, NY. · Medium reddish-purple color in the glass. Earth-bound aromas of dark berries, briar, forest floor, geranium and vanilla lead to a mid weight core of tasty dark berry and plum flavors, veering to the savory, rustic side with a hint of grilled mushrooms in the background. Firm tannins and bright acidity frame the fruit nicely. Soft in the mouth and easy to like. Score: 86. Reviewed September 29, 2013
