Our legacy
Joseph Mellot - Mr MELLOT Chevalier de Sancerre

The great-grandfather of Alexandre, Alphonse Mellot, is the first winemaker of Sancerre to exhibit his wines at the Foire de Paris and to win several medals in wine and culinary events. He then opened a warehouse in the Halle aux vins of Bercy to develop his sales in the capital. His 2 sons Edmond and Joseph, succeeded him as heads of company in 1946.

His son Alexandre, husband of Catherine Corbeau Mellot, succeeds him. Alexandre Mellot was one of the first to believe in the promising potential of Sancerre wines from Centre-Loire. He takes over the family domaine and decides to expand the vineyard, modernize production tools and gives a new impetus to exports. He is then joined in 1987 by Catherine Corbeau Mellot, who becomes the head of sales and communication.
