Domaine Fernand Girard Sancerre 2017
This is an exemplary Sancerre – perfectly clean, crisp mineral palate with lemon and green apple flavours. Beautiful hints of elderflower on the nose.
Domaine Girard is run by Fernand and Monique Girard, ably assisted by their son Alain.
The family come from several generations of winemakers in the tiny village of Chaudoux, located a few miles northwest of the town of Sancerre and directly north of Chavignol.
The Girards lovingly tend 12 hectares of vines and only the best of their production is bottled under under their label.
A state of the art cellar with all best the modern technology combined with traditional viniticultural practices and minimum intervention in both vineyard and cellar result in a beautifully crafted Sancerre.
“The 2013 Domaine Girard Sancerre “La Garenne,” France, comes from wine growers Fernand and Monique Girard assisted by son Alain. They use fruit grown on a steep, east-facing slope with chalky Kimmeridgian soils”.
The wine opens with delicate grapefruit, quince and white-flower aromas. Crisp, citrus flavors balance with bracing acidity and a touch of creaminess. The long-lasting, dry finish has lovely fruity balance. Recommended.
