A unique partnership! The undisputed master of Sancerre, Alphonse Mellot makes some of the appellation's most elegant, impressively expressive wines. A perfectionist and biodynamic winemaker, he has established himself over the years as the Loire's leading ambassador, and each year his cuvées are highly commended for setting the highest standards of excellence.

Partners for several years, we are renewing our collaboration with these 2 made-to-measure cuvées, designed jointly by Alphonse Mellot and Olivier Poussier, World's Best Sommelier.
