      ABOUT THIS WINE

More than 30 hectares located on a magnificent South-facing site. A genuine gift from past generations. The marles, known as "Saint Doulchard" are situated on Kimmeridgien limestone and are practically unique in the Sancerre are a and which give the wine its own special character.

      ABOUT THIS PRODUCER

      The Mellot family, vinegrowers and wine merchants, was again mentioned during the siege of the town. They pursued their patient labours and continued to gain recognition because César Mellot was appointed as Wine Advisor to Louis XIV in 1698.

      At the beginning of the XIX century, Alphonse Mellot founded a tavern in Sancerre where one could savour the local wines and so began a flourishing trade that was to continue. In 1881 he was granted a licence to ship his wine throughout France and all over the World. This marked the beginning of a pacific conquest which has been pursued and developed by the family business from father to son ever since, with the eldest son continuing to bear the name of the Founder Alphonse.

      Today, this century old winemaking tradition is perpetuated by Alphonse Mellot, father and son, the 18th and 19th to bear the name.

      The wines are produced from the upper Sancerre vineyard, the most famous of which is the Domaine La Moussiere. Its exceptional quality has led to it being officially classified as a unique category amongst the Sancerre wines.The Domaine La Moussiere comprises one single vineyard of over thirty hectares. Its ideally exposed location on the south-western tip of Sancerre, its chalk soil and its specific sub-soil are all perfect conditions for the cultivation of the vine.
