Tasting Notes

The wine has a very pure Sauvignon style with fragrant aromas of gooseberries and citrus and a waft of stony minerality. Full and round in the mouth it has a real abundance of fruit supported by elegant acidity.

Producer details

Terroir plays an important role at this estate. Michel, Philippe and Benoît Girard own 19 hectares of vines planted on the three different soil structures of Sancerre: Terres Blanches (clay and limestone), Caillottes (chalky limestone) and Silex (flint). They favour judicious blending of the separately-vinified cuvées to create wines with real complexity and balance.

In the vineyard

The estate of Domaine Michel Girard comprises of 12 hectares which is made up of 30 parcels of vineyards where the average age of vines is 15 years. Terroir plays such an important role in this estate where they are fortunate to have plantings on the three key soil structures of Sancerre, namely Terres Blanches (limestone), Caillottes (chalky limestone)and Silex (flint).

In the winery

The grapes are hand-picked and gently pressed, fermented at 18°C by indigenous yeasts in stainless steel vats - all to preserve natural aromas, elegance and complexity. The final blend brings together the different elements of the three terroirs to create a balanced whole wine.

Food Recommendations

The wine comes from Verdigny in the heart of goats cheese country so is ideal with a soft tangy 'crottin'. Also great with delicate flat white fish in a caper sauce.
