When a full bottle is just too much! A half serve of light and flavoursome Sauvignon Blanc.

Tasting Notes

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.

Production

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.

Producer

Domaine Michel Girard is comprised 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 structures: 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.

    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.
