For over 500 years, the name Mellot has been associated with the production of fine wines in Sancerre. Dating back to 1513, the Joseph Mellot family estate is today embracing the 21st century with the confidence gained from half a millennia of winemaking. Combining tradition and experience with insight and innovation, the Domain uses advances in science and technology to benefit the environment and improve the quality of its wines. Joseph Mellot was the first domain in the Central Loire Valley to obtain ISO 14001 certification and BRC A+ accreditation. Today all of its vineyards are cultivated according to the principles of sustainable agriculture.
Bright and clear to the eye, pale gold in colour with flecks of green. Powerful nose with floral and fruity aromas. The palate is elegant and well balanced, combining freshness, body and a remarkable persistance.
This elegant wine provides a delicate accompaniment to seafood, shellfish and goat’s cheeses, in particular the local “Crottin de Chavignol”.
Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc
