“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.
