Discover Sauvignon Blanc Wines

Sauvignon Blanc is a white wine grape type best known for producing dry white wines. Its taste distinguishes it from most other white wine grape types, making it light and pleasant.

The most frequent Sauvignon Blanc taste notes are tropical, tree, and citrus fruit. When the wine originates from a colder region, subtleties of dates, papaya, melon, and many aromas of herbs or dry underbrush are more prominent. You may detect pieces of English pudding, custard, and vanilla if you're exposed to oak. While it is perhaps best recognized for being the main white wine grape type in the Bordeaux area of France and the Loire Valley, sensuous Sauvignon blancs are also produced in New World wine growing locations like as Napa Valley and Sonoma Valley in California. In addition, Sauvignon Blanc is renowned for being part of the mix that produces the sweet dessert wine known as Sauternes in Bordeaux.

This grape variety thrives in both cold and warm regions and a wide range of soil types. As a result, it's a little more complicated. In New Zealand, for example, the kind of soil on which Sauvignon Blanc is produced has a significant impact.

About the Producer: Joseph Mellot

Joseph Mello is a winery founded by Pierre-Etienne Mellot in Sancerre in 1513. Today, the Mellot family predominantly produces Sauvignon Blanc wines on 100 hectares (247 acres) of vineyards located in appellations in the central Loire Valley. Since 1513, the Mellot family has firmly established itself as the leading wine dynasty in the Loire Valley. César Mello was the wine advisor to King Louis XIV and, in the 1920s, Alphonse Mello won several wine medals and became the first Sancerre winemaker to exhibit his wines at the Foire de Paris, cementing the family's wine reputation. The property in its current form was founded in 1969, when Edmond and Joseph Mello, sons of Alphonse Mello, inherited and later shared ownership of the vineyards. Under the leadership of Catherine Corbeau Mello, Joseph Mello gradually expanded from his original vineyards in Sancerre to appellations such as Pouilly-Fumé, Menetu-Salon, Quincy, Reilly, Coteau du Genois and Bourgueil. Sauvignon Blanc is by far the most dominant grape variety in the estate's vineyards, although there are also Cabernet Franc, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Chasselas and Pinot Gris vineyards. The winemaking methods are determined by terroir, vine and grape variety, with each parcel being harvested and vinified separately. In the case of white wines, the grapes are usually peeled and then gently pressed, but the grapes from the best vineyards are macerated before the pressing process. Fermentation is carried out under controlled temperature conditions for 10 to 15 days, with the wines being kept in contact with the lees before bottling. The red wine vinification process begins with a 24-hour maceration of the whole grapes, followed by a temperature stage. controlled fermentation for 8-10 days. The wines are placed in oak barrels or tanks to age in winter and bottled after a light spring cleaning.
