A pale straw in colour, with golden reflections. An expressive bouquet delivering real aromatic intensity with notes of citrus and exotic fruits. A finely balanced palate with toasted oak and butter meet with crisp and fresh citrus blossoms, while the viscous finish combines roasted apple, and apple blossom notes with a vibrant acidity and a full lingering finish.

Located in the Loire region, Sancerre is an isolated hill that rises up in the middle of beautiful landscape surrounding the Loire River. Domaine La Moussiere is a single vineyard comprising of over 30 hectares in the upper Sancerre region and is, because of its exceptional quality classified as a unique category amongst Sancerre wines. The Mellot family can be traced back as fare as 1513 as winegrowers and wine merchants and Cesar Mellot was appointed Wine Advisor to Louis XIV in 1698. This marked the beginning of a 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. With its chalk soils and specific sub-soil, these are perfect condition for the cultivation of the vines which are managed organically and bio-dynamically with minimum intervention.
