Autumn is here. This season, which marks the end of carefree holidays, is also the one that heralds a new beginning. The trees and vines are adorned with their flamboyant colours, and the desire for savoring tasty, cooked meals accompanied by good wines is gently invited into our daily lives.
The house of Joseph Mellot offers an exceptional selection of autumn wines, to be enjoyed as an aperitif or during a meal with friends or family, in between laughter and slow simmered and comforting dishes.
The unique and refined alliance of pinot noir with its preferred soils. Notes of red and black fruit with a touch of liquorice. Velvety tannins, delicate structure. Long and fresh finish. To be enjoyed with a family meal after a long walk in the forest. Divine with a duck breast with figs and girolle mushrooms or a rack of lamb with honey, dried fruits and oriental spices.
Lush aromas of fresh red fruit. Structured wine with well blended tannins. A convivial wine to enjoy during an evening with friends, wrapped in the warmth of a wooden fireplace. Ideal with a roast pork with ceps and pumpkin confit or a roast chicken with chestnuts, garlic and herbs.
The nose opens with black cherry and violet. The mouth is succulent and full with soft and silky tannins. It will go perfectly with your evenings with friends over a tasty pot-au-feu with pumpkin, mushrooms and onions with cloves, or a roast pork with grilled chestnuts and a puree of sunchoke with hazelnuts…
Intense notes of yellow-fleshed fruit, citrus fruits and exotic fruits. A fleshy mouth, luscious and balanced. Powerful and persistent finish. A perfect wine for date night, lulled by the pitter-patter of the rain in the candlelight. Delicious with roasted scallops with chestnuts and granny apples or a chicken blanquette with pumpkin, girolle mushrooms and chestnuts…
A very expressive nose with citrus and tropical fruit notes. A full and fresh palate with a lingering finish of beautiful length. Unwind for an impromptu aperitif under a cozy blanket with butternut and bacon muffins or mini marinated chicken skewers and pumpkin fries.
Coteaux du Giennois – La Gaupière
A dry and fruity wine with delicate notes of citrus and white flowers. Fresh and long in the mouth. The perfect companion for moments of sharing with friends or family. It will reveal its full potential with a butternut casserole with Fourme d’Ambert cheese or a trout à la meunière with autumn vegetables.
A selection of succulent and luscious wines that incite sharing and conviviality in the tastiest of seasons!
