Alphonse Mollet Sancerre
My wife and I thought some glasses of this producer's Sancerre, 2006 La Moussiere, were wonderful. But I can't find much information about the vintner. Does anyone out there know anything about this producer? Thanks in advance.
First off, it's Mellot (not Mollet), so that might be part of the problem. There is a web site, which I've listed below. In short, in my experience, Mellot is a consistent and very good producer of Sancerre. The "La Moussiere" is probably the Sancerre producer I will go to first if given a choice. I find the wines to show more of a balance between mineral and ruit, whereas some other Sancerre wines can be a bit too much in the gooseberry and grapefruit profiles.
Mellot also makes a "La Moussiere" Sancerre Rose, a "La Moussiere" Sancerre Rouge, and a "Generation XIX" Sancerre.

Thanks for correcting my spelling error. Of course you're right--that was the problem. I found a case online at a store fairly near. Thanks for your help. I do hope it tastes as good at home as it did in the restaurant. This wine was unsual in its balance between flint and fruit, as you point out. Good stuff.
