Alphonse Mellot La Moussière 2009 Sancerre

Clear, light gold in the glass. Clean, medium-plus intensity melon, citrus, and mineral nose. Dry with a hint of residual sugar probably coming from tropical fruit notes. Strong lemon quality. High acidity, though it seems to drop off quite quickly in the finish. Medium body. Seems to be some use of oak here as well—comes through in the nose a bit too. 13% alcohol. Good length. Quite enjoyable, though there’s something about the dulled finish which doesn’t quite satisfy; overall good. See Alphonse Mellot Domaine Moussière.
