2017 Franck Millet "Insolite" Sancerre

SKU #1380160

One of K&L's very finest buys from France, this is a reserve cuvée made from Millet's chalkiest limestone soils. There is a long maceration at very low temperatures to extract as much flavor and character as possible. The resulting wine is intensely charged with stone fruit, minerality, and bright citrus notes. The wines of this family domaine have been a staple here at K&L since the 1994 vintage when Franck and Betty Millet drove a long way (to Beaune!) on Easter Sunday to meet Clyde and crew to present the wines. We love these wines for their freshness, charm, and affordability.

Compared to the regular Sancerre from Franck Millet, Insolite has more depth of fruit, with more complexity and succulence with ample combination of stone fruit and citrus. There is a touch more body, but the mineral component and energetic acidity remain. This the sexy version of Sancerre and I just can't get enough.

There is something tropical in the air... Insolite is always a riper style of Sancerre that is quite unusual. In some vintages it is almost "unsettling" in a good way. I enjoy this wine very much. Something about the ripe juicy lemons, richness of flavors and accompanying minerality that makes it a memorable wine. I would suggest a more richer fare of for example: Chicken Piri-Piri or Teriyaki, Jambalaya, stir-fries, Thai food, Seafood Pasta, Jambon Persille.
