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.

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).
Delicate salmon pink colour and with a flinty nose, this is a savoury and expressive style of Sancerre rosé. The palate is restrained and beautifully balanced with fine acidity and ripe fruit.
