    A beautiful Sancerre Pinot Noir from France's Loire Valley the Alphonse Mellot Generation XIX is a remarkable explosion of flavor. This deep ruby red wine is characterized by rich fruit and earthy minerals. With its rich and complexly layered nose the Alphonse Mellot Generation XIX is seductive. The harmonious palate is packed with cultured and distinctive notes of mulberries, cherries and eastern spices: pink peppercorns and spicy cinnamon. The bold flavors are balanced on a crisp background with soft and warm hints of vanilla and ripe tannins. The full taste pairs well with fresh cows milk cheese, rich gamey meats, and dark chocolate.

    Wine Advocate-Parker :
    Tasted assembled from barrel in tank, the Mellot 2010 Sancerre rouge Generation XIX leads with scents of lightly cooked purple plum and faintly smoky hot goose fat. Richly textured, its tannins really well-covered, this offers a sappy, mouthwatering mid-palate suffused with smoke, salt, chalk, and red meat. This ought to show well for at least half a dozen years.
