Dynamic Loire producer Joseph Mellot, the ngociant arm of Alphonse Mellot in Sancerre, has been rapped on the knuckles by the Institut National des Appellations d'Origine for the name of its new five-litre bag-in-box range, Bords de Loire. While the range embraces three AOC wines (Pouilly-Fum, Bourgueil and Coteaux du Giennois), it also includes two varietal Vins de Pays (Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Franc), for which the only legal place reference should be Jardin de la France. The Vins de Pays will now be marketed under the brand name Destina.
