Tasting Notes : A complex nose of grapefruit and gunflint, with a fresh tropical fruit palate. This wine has exceptional length.

The grapes are grown on predominantly siliceous soils. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted to each terroir.

Following on from cold static settling, the fermentation takes place at low temperatures in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks.

Located between Burgundy and the Berry region, the vineyards of Pouilly-Fumé cover a surface area of 1,317 hectares while those of Pouilly-Sur-Loire total 31 hectares. Four distinct soil types can be distinguished within the vineyards:

Oxfordian Villiers limestone – “caillottes”
Kimmeridgian marls – with fossilised oyster shells
Portlandian Barrois limestone – “caillottes”
Cretaceous flinty clay – flint

Pouilly-Fumés are marked by fruity and floral flavours backed up with great freshness and length.

Deeply rooted in the heart of Sancerre, the history of Joseph Mellot spans 500 years and several generations of the Mellot family. Founded by Pierre Etienne Mellot in 1513, the family-run estate is today one of Sancerre’s largest and undoubtedly most prestigious.
