Our story

Joseph Mellot is a family and historical company that has its roots in Sancerre for 5 centuries, and whose history begins in 1513 with Pierre-Etienne Mellot, the first of a long line of winegrowers. At the end of the 17th century, César Mellot was advisor to King Louis XIV. Over the generations, the Joseph Mellot house, starting with its eponymous estate, has become a true ambassador for the great wines of Centre-Loire.
Since 2005, Catherine Corbeau-Mellot has been pursuing the work of her husband Alexandre and his ancestors with passion and talent. Joseph Mellot is very attached to his fundamental values and remains independent. The company has long been committed to an environmental approach, for sustainable and eco-responsible viticulture: working the soil, controlling yields, monitoring parcels, mechanical weed control...
The vineyard
manager Laurent Goussard, and his team, do their utmost to respect the soil and the vines, and harvest grapes with
great potential
every autumn

With nearly 100 hectares of vines entirely managed in HVE certified sustainable agriculture, Joseph Mellot cultivates vineyards in all 8 appellations of Centre-Loire: Sancerre, the historical cradle of the winegrowers' family, Pouilly-Fumé and Pouilly-sur-Loire, Menetou-Salon, Reuilly, Quincy, Chateaumeillant and Coteaux du Giennois. Among the vineyards that we take great care of, Domaine des Emois is certified

in organic


. The

same rigour reigns in winemaking: at the Joseph Mellot winery, certified ISO14001 since 2009, everything is done to control the environmental impact of our

activity as effectively as possible.

Our oenologist Norbert Buchonnet and his team produce wines of very fine workmanship, regularly distinguished by awards and fine tasting notes in the main guides. Each of these wines perfectly illustrate the richness and diversity of the terroirs of the Centre-Loire region


With her teams, Catherine Corbeau-Mellot strives to combine, day after day, sustainable development and quality requirements... Each of our vintages is the most beautiful signature of this commitment!
