Biodynamic. Mellot’s Pouilly-Fumé was originally bottled under the name of Alphonse Jr’s sister, Emmanuelle Mellot. Emmanuelle has recently moved on to start her own project, so the Pouilly now falls under the domaine banner. The parcel in question is 1.8 hectares of 40-year-old vines in the flint-rich terroir of Saint-Laurent-l’Abbaye, a village best known to the wine world as the origin of Dagueneau’s Pur Sang cuvée.

For those familiar with this estate’s Sancerre, the similarities born from hand-tended, biodynamic, low-cropped vines feeding off a mineral-rich site are again on offer here. The winemaking also follows a similar thread to the family’s Sancerre wines, although here 50% of the juice is fermented in stainless steel and the rest in used, tronconique oak casks.
