Pouilly Fumé comes from Sancerre. It's aromatically very pure with a crystal-clear yet silken-textured palate that, like all the Mellot cuvées, displays a noteworthy absence of pyrazine characters. You can expect pulpy pear and baking apple fruit complementing the wines steely, limestone-enriched precision and length.
Alphonse Mellot crafts excellent whites, reds and rosés in a very hands-on, biodynamic approach. Add to that their 500 years of winemaking experience, and it’s understandable as to why they are beacons of quality in Loire Valley wine production. Now, 18th generation Alphonse Mellot and his son Alphonse Jr, tend their 47ha of vineyards that stretch across the upper Loire organically and biodynamically.
