Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre
£18.50
A delicate and complex Sancerre with great depth of fruit; the boisterous green aromatics often found in Sauvignon Blanc have been skilfully restrained, allowing fruity layers of green apples and lemons to show through.

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.

Vinification
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.
