Pure chalky flavors with a mardi-gras of crystallized citrus fruit and soft spices – a far-cry from new world Sauvignon.
In 2013, this historic estate celebrated its 500th anniversary – 19 successive generations of winegrowers in the Mellot family. Today Alphonse Jr. is in total charge, having taken over the reigns from his father Alphonse Sr. fully fifteen years ago. The property, known as La Moussiere, is now at the height of quality for white wines world-wide. All farming is organic and certified biodynamic, with an elite team in the vineyards focused on low yields and ideal ripeness.
The Domaine de La Moussière is the cornerstone of our house. This is from where we produce "La Moussière" our normal blend, "Génération XIX" and "Edmond".
More than 30 hectares located on a magnificent South-facing site. A genuine gift from past generations. The marles, known as "Saint Doulchard" are situated on Kimmeridgien limestone and are practically unique in the Sancerre are a and which give the wine its own special character.
The Sancerre Blanc "La Moussière" is produced from young and old vines.
