An elegant, dry white wine with a good balance of fruit and wood.Sancerre, a dramatically situated hilltop town on the left bank of the upper Loire, lends its name to one of the Loire s most famous wines.Since 1513, the Mellot family have been producing wine. In the 19th Century, Alphonse Mellot established a tavern in Sancerre and still to this day the 18th and 19th generations of the family, both Alphonse, are at the head of this wine producing family.In 1970, Alphonse senior took over the company and began directing his attention to quality, rather than quantity and now, lead by Alphonse junior, farms the 47 hectares mainly organically and biodynamically.Grapes: 100% Sauvignon BlancRegion: France / Loire / Sancerre AOCMaker: Alphonse Mellot.Notes: An elegant, dry white wine with a good balance of fruit and wood.
