The vines are planted on soil comprised of clay and flint stones. On average the vines are 30 years old and are planted in a 2.4ha vineyard in the village of St Andelain. All vineyard processes are carried out in an environmental manner, adapted for each terroir.
After several difficult vintages, the 2018 harvest has produced excellent quality fruit and good quantities too.
Vinification and ageing for a minimum of 12 months takes place in Joseph Mellot's centuries old cellars in the heart of Sancerre. The wines are stirred regularly to bring the lees back into suspension, to impart more character. After gentle filtering, the wine is bottled. Around 3,000 bottles are produced each year.
