Joseph Mellot Destinea, 2012

Joseph Mellot makes very fine Sancerre, but this is his lower priced Sauvignon Blanc, apparently from lesser appellations but still delicious and classy.

Medium yellow. Mellow Sauvignon smells--mint, melon and flowers. Citric acidity but, again, mellow rather than shrill. Very refreshing, makes the tongue tingle. The flavors are surprisingly deep for a wine at this price level. I would be very happy to find this wine on a restaurant wine list.
