2018 Franck Millet "Insolite" Sancerre

SKU #1440209

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 and minerality, with 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.

When the Insolite is in stock, I would bet a hefty sum that this is the most recommended Sancerre from our staff. Heck, even when it is out of stock it is still pretty highly recommended! Ripe in mineral, tropical fruit, and grassy aromas, the Insolite from Franck Millet is consistently crisp, clean, and classy. With a fuller mouthfeel and a flavor profile of light stone fruit (think apricots and white peaches), pithy lemon, white strawberries, and a dry, minerally finish, the 2018 is no exception.

Each six-pack wooden case of the Insolite comes with actual rocks from the vineyard itself, a testament to the pride that Franck Millet has in their terroir, and you can see why when you drink the wine. A beautifully full nose rife with tropical fruit, citrus and wet stone opens this stunner of a Sancerre. The palate is rich and ripe with a gorgeous acidity and mouthfeel, white peach, apricot with notes of grapefruit and lemon zest blend together and then give way to an incredible mineral finish. For the price this is an absolutely delightful Sancerre and a really pleasant surprise, and I definitely would recommend.
