Domaine Michel Girard Sancerre
The grapes were 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 of wines from vineyards with different soils brings together their individual elements and flavours to create a balanced, complete wine.
The wine shows pure Sauvignon style - fragrant aromas of grapefruit and citrus with a waft of mineral pungency. Full and round in the mouth, with further fruity grapefruit and orange flavours but also an almond nuttiness, supported by elegant zingy lees and acidity.
The wine comes from Verdigny, the heart of goats cheese country, so it's ideal to wash down a soft tangy 'crottin'. Also great with delicate white fish or grilled peppers.
