|As far back as the XVI century, in 1513 to be exact, the local records mention the MELLOT family, whose life even at that time was governed by the seasons of the vine and the production of wines of excellent quality.
The Mellot family, vinegrowers and wine merchants, was again mentioned during the siege of the town. They pursued their patient labours and continued to gain recognition because Cesar Mellot was appointed as Wine Advisor to Louis XIV in 1698.
The wines are produced from the upper Sancerre vineyard, the most famous of which is the DOMAINE LA MOUSSIERE. Its exceptional quality has led to it being officially classified as a unique category amongst the Sancerre wines.
