100% Sauvignon Blanc from Loire, France.
The history of the Mellot family and Sancerre have been intertwined since the beginning of the 16th century. Through dedication and reputation, a Mellot ancestor was appointed as the wine advisor to Louis XIV in 1698. Regardless of the distinguished family history, the estate of Alphonse Mellot continues to define what constitutes a Sancerre worth drinking.
'La Moussière' is a lieu-dit (single vineyard) located in northern Sancerre, known for its clay and limestone mix. This site is the heart and soul of Alphonse Mellot's vineyard holdings, farmed both organically and biodynamically.
