Pierre-Etienne Mellot certainly could not have imagined that, in 1513, he would be the first link in a great wine-growing story! Wine-maker by trade, he laid the foundations of a small vineyard at Sancerre, that every generation has since been able to preserve, enhance and improve. So the Mellot family can proudly assert that they have always made wine, and few domains in France can claim such a heritage.
This steely mineral wine is still young. It has the crispest apple and lemon fruits as well as a tight mineral texture. It obviously needs to age with its nervy character keeping the more generous fruit in check. Drink from 2018.
