History & Geography
Deeply rooted in the heart of Sancerre, the history of Joseph Mellot spans 500 years and several generations of the Mellot family. Founded by Pierre Etienne Mellot in 1513, the family-run estate is today one of Sancerre’s largest and undoubtedly most prestigious. In 1984, the current generation, under the stewardship of Alexandre Mellot, took over the estate. Alexandre Mellot was one of the region’s pioneers who believed in the huge potential of the Loire’s Central Vineyard wines. He invested in the expansion of vineyards, modernisation of the winery and in developing exports. In 1987, he was joined by his wife, Catherine Corbeau-Mellot, who then looked after sales and marketing. Following Alexandre’s tragic death in 2005 Catherine took the reins of the family business.
