Description

Domaine Fernand Girard Sancerre

Domaine Fernand Girard Sancerre is perfectly clean, crisp mineral palate with lemon and green apple flavours. Moreover it has beautiful hints of elderflower on the nose.

Firstly the wine opens with delicate grapefruit, quince and white-flower aromas. This is followed by crisp, citrus flavours balanced with bracing acidity and a touch of creaminess.

As a result, the finish is long-lasting and dry with a lovely fruity balance.

Producer

Domaine Girard is run by Fernand and Monique Girard, assisted by their son Alain.

The family come from several generations of winemakers in the tiny village of Chaudoux. It is located a few miles northwest of the town of Sancerre and directly north of Chavignol.

In addition, a state of the art cellar with all best the modern technology combined with traditional viniticultural practices and minimum intervention result in a beautifully crafted Sancerre.

The appearance of Dandelion Vineyards Enchanted Garden of the Eden Valley Riesling foretells the pristine and unalloyed quality of its fruit.

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy Quick View

Domaine des Ballandors Quincy 2019

This is the village adjacent to Sancerre and Pouilly Fume where wines of similar style are made but because of Quincy’s ‘lesser’ name at much reduced cost. This wine is a testament to that; the flavours and aromas achieved in this wine are equivalent to any top flight Sancerre, with ‘grippy’ edgy grapefruit notes and steely crisp fruit. When Anton Beukes, winemaker at the Môreson Winery in South Africa, tasted this wine at supper, he said; ‘This is the wine I would love to make’ - Anton makes some very serious wines, so what an accolade! Winner of Best French White Wine at ‘France under one roof’ London 2005.

Jean-Claude Bachelet Puligny Montrachet Les Aubues 2017

This is really classy in 2010, the first year with the name of the lieu-dit on the label. A beautiful floral nose, dancing fruit, charming and balanced, it possesses an excellent racy acidity and is altogether a great success. From 50-year-old vines in Les Aubues, an enclave within better known Enceigneres, this is very attractive with quite a full nose and an excellent finish.

Aromo Viognier Quick View

Aromo Viognier 2018

Full bodied white with a rich background of savoury notes, a very aromatic peach and mayblossom fruit character, but without any sweetness. No oak and fresh fruit makes this wine a real winner. The Aromo wines have a great charm and appeal and this is no exception.
