Collection: ALPHONSE MELLOT

“Alphonse Mellot’s white Sancerres are amongst the most brilliant and pure illustrations of the genius of the Sauvignon grape”
The World’s Greatest Wines, Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve                       
Alphonse Mellot situated in Sancerre, the stunning hilltop town bordering the River Loire in the Loire Valle is considered to be one of the most outstanding makers of Pinot Noirs and Sauvignon Blancs in the world with historic records of wine production dating as far back as 1513. The  winemaking family and business must surely be one of the longest running winemaking dynasties that ever existed. It has survived medieval sieges, the French Revolution, phylloxera, two world wars and the enormous rise in international popularity of New World Sauvignon Blancs.
Alphonse Mellot’s highly revered wines come from La Domaine de la Moussiere, which is a single vineyard of over thirty hectares, situated on the South-West upper slopes of the Sancerre hill. This premium location ensures the vineyard gets optimum exposure to the sunshine, vital in this cool climate region, as well as sitting on the perfect limestone rich soils. The vines are densely planted (8,000-10,000 vines per-hectare) and there is a large percentage of old vines, some close to 90 years old, which contributes to the complexity and heritage of the wines. Incredibly, 45 people are employed to manage 55 hectares!
And absolutely no expense has been spared on the winery - it is full of the kind of equipment (sorting tables, conveyor belts, pneumatic presses, large wooden temperature controlled fermentation tanks, etc.) that you only typically find in the finest Burgundy domains.
Mellot’s Sauvignons are capable of recalling great white Burgundy, sometimes Chablis, sometimes Côte d’Or. And they typically age better than most white burgundies do these days! Jacqueline Friedrich summed it up perfectly when she wrote; “Each Sancerre [from Mellot] is at its most elegant: discreetly herbaceous, a beautiful weave of citrus, oak and minerals.”
