Review

La Chatellenie is an agile and lively and dynamic Sancerre, but also sumptuous and, for this reason, is extraordinarily good value. Fragrant, thanks to vinification in stainless steel only, and at the same time full-bodied, thanks to a few months on the lees. Produced from agriculturally sustainable cultivation, this white wine from the Loire comes from the characteristic vineyards located on clay and siliceous soils, rich in flint. It is a fresh, citrusy and very mineral white wine. It exudes young, delicate aromas of citrus peel, yellow fruit and aromatic herbs, with the typical hints of flint that characterise this area, which produces the world's greatest Sauvignon Blancs. The flavour is soft, juicy and fresh at the same time, with good fruit and great sapidity, with a long mineral persistence.

Very nice Sancerre

Bastante bien Sancerre. Sabrosa, buena nariz, buen final. No es tan refinado como otros Sancerres que he tenido, pero es bueno, y especialmente tiene una buena relación calidad-precio.

Vino que he disfrutado en varias ocasiones con un aporte mineral muy destacable y aromas variados de carácter floral.

Wine from Maison Joseph Mellot

Maison Joseph Mellot

The story of the Mellots, winemakers since 1513, is a beautiful family epic of the excellence and investment in quality that has been a feature of the legendary Sancerre area for a hundred years. Haute-Loire, Sancerre is one of the temples of Sauvignon Blanc, and needs no introduction. In the 1920s Alphonse Mellot was one of the pioneers of the success of this appellation, presenting his wines, among the first, in Paris. He was...
