Joseph Mellot Sancerre La Chatellenie

22 in stock

A fresh and modern style of Loire Valley Sauvignon Blanc. Crisp minerality and a lemon and lime zest citrus combine to produce a highly drinkable wine with good depth and complexity.

La Chatellenie is a single vineyard of 22 hectares with ancient soils from the Cretaceous period. This flint rich siliceous clay emparts the subtle hint of gun-flint.

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.
