The Mellot family Domaine dates back more than 500 years, with Cesar Mellot rising in his time to be wine advisor to Louis XIV. This is a fantastic Sauvignon Blanc from vineyards only a 15 minute drive from Sancerre itself, but at a fraction of the price of the ‘grand vin.’ The wine shows a pale gold colour, with an intense and expressive note. A citrus and tropical fruit medley. Full in the mouth. Persistent citrus and mango aromas. Wonderful freshness. This sauvignon is great as an aperitif, or goes well with chicken, fish and spicy food.

Few white grapes are as universally recognisable. While most are content to aim for no more than citrussy simplicity, Sauvignon Blanc is irrepressible. Its intensely green verve, tart fruit and racy acidity have driven plantings in nearly every cool grape-growing region on the globe. Though the south west of France and the more northern Loire Valley both claimed it as their own for many years, it has in the last generation found a new spiritual home in Marlborough, on New Zealand‘s South Island.
