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. The Insolite is all from the Caillotes (Oxfordian limestone-clay) in their holdings. The Millets are so proud of this soil, a few souvenir rocks are included in the wooden six packs in which the wine is shipped.

Franck and Betty Millet are the hardest working duo in Sancerre! The Insolite is all from the limestone parcels of their holdings and that minerality really shines through. Chalky notes are quickly embraced by grapefruit peel, white flowers and roasted pineapple. The 2019 is richer and more intense than the 2018 but has a vibrant streak of acidity that give this the focus and precision to drink beautifully for the next decade. Every year this Sancerre is one of our best and brightest!
