Cuvee Edmond comes from vines between 4o and 87 years in age. Generous, spicy and crisp with tremendous complexity, this is a Sancerre for the cellar. With a few years' bottle age it develops wonderful creaminess cut by minerality.

Along with the domaine Vacheron, Mellot is one of the greatest producers of 'classic' Sancerre: linear, lithe, acid-driven and elegant wines quite different from the powerhouse whites that tend to come from Chavignol. Also like Vacheron, Mellot farms biodynamically and produces a wide range of cuvées, including many site-specific ones, mostly from the areas surrounding the medieval town of Sancerre itself. The style is here supremely elegant, and the top wines have good aging (10+ yrs) potential.

"The 2019 Cuvée Edmond is an outstanding Sancerre, but it has a price tag to match. It is already drinking beautifully with its ripe apple, white stone fruit and subtle savory characters enveloped within its succulent, round and concentrated core. The conclusion is a delight with a chalky coating covering the entire mouth and a fine line of tension weaving the wine together." -Vinous

"Compared to other whites, Mellot's 2019 Sancerre Edmond is definitely from another world of thinking and winemaking. The nose indicates a more "natural" approach since it is more generous in its autumn-like fruit aromas (from dry old vines in fact) as well as more oxidative and phenolic. However, as it takes in more air, the purer and finer the wine becomes. On the palate, this is a pure and finessed as well as rich and intense Sancerre with a very long and complex finish. I wouldn't say this is enormously powerful, but it is pretty powerful and truly intense in all dimensions. The intensity and richness is combined with mineral structure, fine tannins and a sustainability coming from the soils. This wine has enormous energy and is, in the end, a great one and with lots of iodine. 14% stated alcohol. Natural cork." -Robert Parker
