Wine of IGP Côtes de la Charité appellation
From Nantes to the foothills of the Massif Central, the Loire Valley produces an average of 600,000 hectolitres of vin de pays. 95% of this production is sold under the “Jardin de la France Vin de Pays” designation, usually accompanied by the name of the grape variety. Five "Vins de Pays de Zone" are also produced in the Loire Valley. The IGP (PGI) Côtes de la Charité has been one of these since it was created by a decree in 1986. 

The very old Côtes de la Charité wine producing area lies on steep slopes in the foothills of the Morvan. The Cistercian monks who created the vineyards came from Vougeot. Burgundians at heart and expert wine growers, they knew how to get the best from this terroir. Today Domaine Alphonse Mellot stands out for the quality of its Côtes de la Charité wines. 

According to the appellation’s specifications, the Côtes de la Charité IGP wines must be produced from grapes harvested in the communes of the La Charité-sur-Loire canton and the communes of Arbourse, Châteauneuf-Val-de-Bargis, Dompierre-sur-Nièvre, Germigny-sur-Loire and Parigny- les-Vaux. The grapes used for the white wines are mainly Chardonnay and Sauvignon (70% minimum) complemented by Chasselas, Pinot Blanc and Aligoté (30% maximum). The red must be produced from the main varieties of Gamay Noir, Pinot Noir and Pinot Gris (70% minimum), complemented by Gamay Teinturier de Bouze and Gamay Teinturier de Chaudenay (30% maximum).
