From 60+ year-old vines on Kimmeridgian marl soils and fermented naturally with wild yeasts in wooden vats, the 2020 "Straight Outta" Sancerre Melodie (identical with the Mélodie Vieilles Vignes) opens with a deep, ripe and complex, mineral and spicy rather than fruity bouquet whose ripe and warm fruit remains in the background and is wrapped in refreshing citrus, limestone and iodine notes. Full-bodied, fresh and focused on the palate, with concise mineral acidity and refreshing, highly stimulating polyphenols, this is an elegant, lively, complex and vivacious Sancerre that mirrors the warm vintage but also the old vines rooting deep in great, biodynamically cultivated soils. With a great, persistent finish, this is a classic Sancerre that I would love to have with shellfish such as lobster and crayfish. 13% alcohol. Natural cork, Tasted in March 2022.
