Overview of the Wine
As far back as the XVI century, in 1513 to be exact, the local records mention the MELLOT family, whose life even at that time was governed by the seasons of the vine and the production of wines of excellent quality. The Mellot family, vinegrowers and wine merchants, was again mentioned during the siege of the town. They pursued their patient labours and continued to gain recognition because César Mellot was appointed as Wine Advisor to Louis XIV in 1698.

At the beginning of the XIX century, ALPHONSE MELLOT founded a tavern in Sancerre where one could savour the local wines and so began a flourishing trade that was to continue. In 1881 he was granted a licence to ship his wine throughout France and all over the World. This marked the beginning of a pacific conquest which has been pursued and developed by the family business from father to son ever since, with the eldest son continuing to bear the name of the Founder Alphonse.

Today, this century old winemaking tradition is perpetuated by Alphonse MELLOT, father and son, the 18th and 19th to bear the name.

Winemaker's Tasting Notes
La Moussière is the estate’s flagship cuvee, its richness, energy and precision defining the Alphonse Mellot style. This 100% Sauvignon white wine has a floral and fruity nose combining white flowers with citrus fruits, a resplendent golden robe with glints of green, and a lively, refreshing palate.

We are the only estate in Sancerrois to have the prestigious "hors concours" (beyond competition) distinction bestowed upon us, and the La Moussière vineyard is our cornerstone. Its terroirs, precious gifts from generations past, lie at the very heart of the Sancerre appellation. La Moussière is the estates's flagship cuvee, its richness, energy and precision defining the Alphonse Mellot style.

92 Points - Ian Blackburn
The optimal 2022 vintage is finally here, and Alphonse Mellot did not disappoint.  The wine is typical, restrained, and elegant with mouth-filling fruit; notes of grapefruit and white flowers.  Youthful and will continue to improve over the next year - with a 6-8 year window for your cellar.  Alphonse Mellot Domaine is large with over 50ha (about 125 Acres) in Sancerre and maintains its sustainable and organically grown designations.  Approximately 50% of La Moussière is barrel fermented.  Color 13.5/15, Aroma 23/25, Body 22.5/25, Overall 33/35 = 92 Points
