Alphonse Mellot : Edmond 2012

Loire - Sancerre - Blanc - 13° Alphonse Mellot Alphonse Mellot 2012 F611/12
  • Parker : 96
L'emblématique cuvée Edmond de la Maison Alphonse Mellot, hommage à Alphonse Edmond Mellot, est issue des vignes de sauvignon blanc les plus vieilles du vignoble. Sous sa robe jaune or aux reflets vert brillant, Edmond 2012 dévoile un nez majestueux et riche. Il exhale des arômes de réglisse, d'anis, d'herbe fraichement coupée, le tout rehaussé de miel, de citron et de brioche. Au palais, ce Sancerre est gourmand et riche. Ses saveurs oscillent entre le citron vert, la vanille et le muscat. Sa finale épicée et longue semble taillée dans le calcaire. Après de longues années en cave, Edmond 2012 empruntera de délicates saveurs minérales, beurrées et grillées.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Aromas of limes, yellow citrus, crushed stones, herbs, chamomile and honey lead the 2012 Sancerre Edmond to a refreshingly mineral, profund and pure palate of great expression and a stimulating length with citrus flavors. This was my first note of the 2012 Sancerre Edmond, which is dedicated to Alphonse Mellot's father Alphonse Edmond. The selection from the oldest (about 100 years old) Sauvignon Blanc grapes of the estate (on calcareous marl soils) is the purest and most precise expression of the kimmeridgian terroir because - and this is my finding of the second day -áthere is nothing more on the nose than ripe fruit aromas (nectarines again) based on and powdered with rock flour. This exceptional Sancerre was fermented and aged for 11 months in wooden vats and new demi-muid barrels, which initially seemed to add a further layer to this already very complex wine. However, the oak was completely absorbed by the minerality, which shines through even clearer the second day when Edmond became significantly more pure, transparent and naked. Its length, complexity and tension, though, remains unrivaled. This is a really powerful and expressive Sancerre but does neither lack purity nor finesse, thrill nor aging potential. I would definitely buy it to give it 8-10 years although it is already accessible.
