Domaine joseph mellot Sancerre

Domaine Jospeh Mellot produces Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir, Rosé, and Sancerre in the Loire Valley of France. The Mellot dynasty of the Joseph Mellot Estate in Loire was founded in Sancerre almost five centuries ago by Pierre-Etienne Mellot and, since then, the family has always been involved in winemaking. In fact, in 1698, César Mellot, was entrusted with the weighty task of advising King Louis XIV on his choice of wines.

When Alexandre Mellot took over the family estate in 1984 he decided to extend the vineyards and modernise the winery. Today, Joseph Mellot is the only estate that owns vineyards in all the appellations of the region (Sancerre, Pouilly-Fume, Menetou-Salon, Reuilly and Quincy. The vineyard area now extends over 85 hectares.
