THIS MONTH'S FEATURE

A beacon of quality in Sancerre

Perched along the left bank of France’s longest river - the Loire - lies Alphonse Mellot. Located in Sancerre, one of Europe’s great limestone soils, this beautiful region is acclaimed as the greatest producer of Sauvignon Blanc in the world. Here, the century old winemaking tradition has been passed down within the Mellot family from generation to generation, dating all the way back to the 1500s. Alphonse Mellot was, and still is, one of the beacons of quality in the region. With everything done by hand, biodynamically and to impeccable standards, the Mellot family produces the most luminous and authentic representations of the Sauvignon grape.

“True artists with Sauvignon… [the Mellot family’s] worthy aspirations have gradually raised them to the peaks of the great Sauvignons of the world. Alphonse Mellot’s white Sancerres are amongst the most brilliant and pure illustrations of the genius of the Sauvignon grape.” - Michel Bettane and Thierry Desseauve, The World's Greatest Wines

EDMOND

Coming from the same parcel of vines in La Moussière, Alphonse Mellot’s principle vineyards, Edmond is dedicated to Alphonse-Edmond, the father of Alphonse Senior. He was originally responsible for creating this cuvée and shaping the Sancerre appellation that we have today. This wine is a pure Sauvignon Blanc that is succulent, complex and full of energy. It has a rather long oaked character that plays well with the ripeness of the fruit. Serve with oysters or scallops, white meats or even fresh fruit and cheese.



LA MOUSSIÈRE

This welcoming and lively taste is produced by the vineyards of Domaine de la Moussière, which is the foundation of this estate. As a blend of fruit from old and new vines, this pure Sauvignon Blanc has a fruity, yet flowery bouquet of scents. La Moussière is perfect to serve with fish tartare, lobster and fresh goat cheeses.



LES ROMAINS

Sourced from vines planted over 50 years ago, this 100% Sauvignon Blanc is full of fresh citrus flavors and hints of new oak. It is a rich and creamy Sancerre on the palate, that presents a potent minerality. Les Romains would pair seamlessly with a pork or shellfish dish, spicy foods and of course, goat cheese.
