Perfect for aging, the Alphonse Mellot
En Grand Champs Sancerre
red wine is a beautiful Pinot Noir
from France's Loire Valley. The beautiful deep crimson color of this wine only begins to hint at the complexities of the bold nose. The spicy aromas are defined by the smoky, dense and intensely layered bouquet. The palate of the Alphonse Mellot En Grand Champs Sancerre is defined by strong fruits: mulberries and cherries, and the spicy hint of pink peppercorns. These bold flavors melt into long lasting-silky tannins that with continue to evolve with age. This wine pairs perfectly with rich meats like Charolais beef as well as with spiced fruit desserts.
