It was in Sancerre in 1513 that Pierre Etienne Mellot wrote the first page of a wine-making story which gives a lot of information... The Mellots asserted their legitimacy in the region via their wines, with César Mellot who, in 1698, become a very close advisor to King Louis XIV, advising him about wine. The Mellot family therefore became iconic in the Sancerre region. With this great experience over the years, the estate is present in all the Central Loire appellations. And this is how a beautiful wine-making journey unveils a range of terroirs of an incredible diversity.
