La Moussière is one of the great vineyards of the Loire Valley. With incredibly rocky, limestone-rich soils, this gently rolling vineyard lies on the ancient Saint-Doulchard marls, which form a part of the great Kimmeridgian chain (à la Chablis). Coupled with Mellot's meticulous biodynamic farming and low yields, it’s a terroir responsible for some of Sancerre's most striking and atypical wines.

Terroir

Most of the hard work it takes to produce quality wine happens in the vinyard. The soil, the climatic conditions, the aspect, the bodies of water and many more factors, collectively knwon as "terroir" can influence the flavour of wine and give wine distint minerality, depth and character.
