Twil wine fair : the favorite of the press 

Pithon-Paillé - La Fresnaye • Loire Valley

Tasted and acclaimed by Le Monde & Le Figaro

"A delight" (Le Monde)
"The charm works" (Le Figaro)

The legendary Jo Pithon has passed the baton to Ivan Massonnat, "passionate about wine" (La RVF) "to make more than one oenophile swoon" (Terre de Vins), who wants to go further in the approach initiated by Jo by converting the vines already cultivated organically into biodynamics and by investing in plant material and technical installations. Jo Pithon remains as a consultant to bring his experience to the wine estate teams.

"One of the legends of the Loire Valley" (Terre de Vins)

"Jewel of the Layon" (La RVF)

"If we want to talk about terroir, we need a living soil, and organic is the minimum" (Jo Pithon)

The Haut-Médoc vertical 2011 - 2013 - 2015 

Château Tour Marcillanet

" Soft mouthfeel, which prefers fruity freshness to tannic power supported by a quality aging. A traditional, well-made Haut-Médoc" (Gilbert & Gaillard about the 2013)

The 2015 combines structure, elegance and body, a beautiful tannic structure and a long finish. The 2011 combines complexity and aromatic intensity, a full-bodied wine with melted tannins and a long, tangy finish.
 
The presence of vines seems to date back to the 13th century, when the château was built. We find its name in the first Bordeaux wine classifications, notably in the Ferret guide of 1868. It is a human-sized, family-run and autonomous estate. Claire and Marc Ponsar make their wines in the Medoc tradition.

Joseph Mellot

"Sancerre Flagship" (Bettane & Desseauve)
"Purity, finesse, elegance" (Le Figaro about Sancerre)
"A key figure in the Sancerre scene" (Le Figaro)

The name Mellot has been associated with the vineyard for 500 years. César Mellot, who was a wine adviser to Louis XIV, created a veritable dynasty of winemakers.

In this emblematic wine estate of the Centre-Loire region, it is the terroir that takes precedence and everything is done to bring out its best expression. Today, it is the talented Catherine Corbeau Mellot who guides the vineyard towards ever greater success.
