Emmanuelle Mellot Pouilly Fume

Home > Shop > Emmanuelle Mellot Pouilly Fume

Emmanuelle, the daughter of Alphonse Mellot, has been cutting her winemaking teeth on a 1.8ha parcel of limestone-rich terroir in the Saint-Laurent climat of Pouilly-Fumé for a few years now. Very much in the ilk of her father and brother's Sancerre, this wine tastes like it has been munching on minerals and little else. 
For those familiar with the Mellot Sancerre, La Moussière, the similarities born from making a wine from low-cropped vines feeding off a mineral-rich, limestone site are again there to taste; it's aromatically very pure with a crystal-clear yet silken-textured palate that, like all the Mellot cuvées, displays a noteworthy absence of pyrazine characters. You can expect pulpy pear and baking apple fruit complementing the wines steely, limestone-enriched precision and length. For the record, winemaking follows a similar thread to her brother Alphonse Jr's Sancerre La Moussière - 60% of the production is fermented in stainless steel and the rest is done in large, worn oak barrels.
