Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre ‘Silex’ 2021

France / Loire

Andy's Tasting Notes

Temporarily out of stock. More stock due mid June. This version of Sancerre differs from our other Sancerre (Domaine Roblin) in that it is produced on silex soils (flint) as opposed to terres blanches soils (clay and limestone).  Silex soils imbue the wine with a pronounced smoky and intense mineral overtone yet still delivers a poised and supremely balanced example of Sauvignon Blanc.

Producer Info

Domaine Michel Girard comprises of 12 hectares of vineyards, made up of 30 parcels of vines with an average age of 15 years. Terroir plays an important role at this estate. Michel, Philippe and Benoît Girard’s vines are planted on each of Sancerre’s three different soil types: Terres Blanches (clay and limestone), Caillottes (chalky limestone) and Silex (flint). The brothers favour judicious blending of the separately-vinified cuvées to create wines with real complexity and balance.
