For five centuries, the Mellot dynasty have run this estate bordering Sancerre. Its tiny Clos de Pressoir vineyard has just 4 hectares of Sauvignon vines and benefits from a similar, fossil-rich soil. The resulting wine is herbaceous with grapefruit notes and a creamy, crushed seashell minerality. Think lemon meringue pie!
"The Mellot family’s flagship Menetou-Salon, the lesser-known neighbour of Sancerre and Pouilly-Fumé. From a single vineyard full of ammonites, this is a delicious example of the appellation, with its grassy scent, ripe greengage fruit and crushed seashell minerality.
